If the maker's mark is CT then it could be Carl Tengstedt (1819-1862): https://www.silverstamplar.com/c-d.html (third from the bottom)
I couldn't find when the additional "S" hallmark came into use but in any case it's a later addition so it shouldn't be found on items from the mid 19th century.

I couldn't find any info about the years but as I suspected it was a much later addition. Do you know why it was used? The only info I could find was that there was a similar mark with P for platinum but but was it really necessary to have an additional hallmark just to differentiate silver and platinum?
