Fabulous and Early! Silver baby rattle coral and bells

Fabulous silver baby rattle with coral handle/teething stick. Four bells remain, there are two bells missing. The bells that are present appear to have been crushed a little at one time. Whistle tip, whistle does not work. Silver ring for hanging. Ive looked at loads and loads of rattles trying to date this as it is not marked. Late 18thC??? Mid 19thC??? I honestly dont think its any more recent than 1850's, but you will have to decide as this is not an area of expertise for me. While the areas of crushing are condition issues, I do not personally find them detracting at all. A very hard to find item that would display beautifully on its own. Just lovely. PLEASE NOTE: NO LAYAWAY ON THIS ITEM AT THIS TIME. I have a big vet bill to pay off. Once thats off my books, I will reinstate my layaway option on many of my items. But dont wait!!! It could be gone before you know it. Measures 4 7/8ths inches from whistle tip to coral tip
