This old cast iron twisted horse bit measures 11.125" wide by 5.125" high. It is made of four pieces, which hinge on either side and in the middle. Its simple design is characterized by a twisted two-part snaffle bit and two 2.125" in diameter side rings attached to slightly curved bars with top and bottom knobs. Maker and exact age are unknown. This old cast iron twisted horse bit has no cracks or breaks. However, the surface has rusted. Wonderful decorative piece.
