comment Where does だって come from?
Forgive me if I'm wrong but is とて an auxiliary verb/助動詞? Isn't it a (quotative case) particle/助詞?

I think it's 「だ」(dictionary.goo.ne.jp/leaf/jn2/132198/m0u/%E3%81%A0) + 「って」(dictionary.goo.ne.jp/leaf/jn2/147762/m0u)

~のん sounds childlike to me. (幼稚園児か、小学校低学年くらいの・・・でも、近年はあまり聞かない気がする・・・古い言い方なのかも)

comment The use of ~た、~ている、~ていた to refer to a resultant state (new question)
@Tim You can use 持つ・持った in conversation too, and it might just sound a bit more formal/politer. (I don't see much difference between 持つ and 持った in this context. Maybe 持つ sounds a little bit more formal.) I don't think you'd use 持っていた here, even in the written form.
