Horse Bridle Bit Iron Solid Twist Snaffle Double Rings
This is a rarely seen, 1870's-1890's era horse bridle bit with a single twist mouth piece, with 4 2.5" diameter outer rings. Two of the rings are fitted into snaffle bit end holds, and the other 2 are free to move on the length of the twisted formed snaffle section. The mouth piece is about 1/2" diameter stock on this one. This is a all hand forged bit, and is very clean, and could actually be used. There is some evidence of minor past rust pitting, but is not rusty now. An antique worthy of being displayed! We have seen none like it to date! We have several bridal bits from the 19th century for sale. A most interesting collection!
