This is an antique European horse bit - I believe for military use, but would welcome identification
It is made of steel which has an aged dark patina.
Its one piece mouthpiece tapers and rises towards its centre.
The short flat cheeks are curved, they have small snaffle rings and integral curb rein rings.
One curb hook remains.
There are no maker's marks or stamps
