Natalie began to gabble impatiently and hold her hands out again as soon as she saw the plastic shell of the Playtex Nurser.
Source: Insomnia by Stephen King
Context: Natalie is a toddler.

Does the shell refer to cover the Playtex Nurser?

Thank you.

    The "shell" is the entire plastic bottle that holds the soft, disposable inner liner that collapses as the baby feeds.
