A Brazilian Horse Bit

This steel horse bit comes from Brazil
It has a medium height port with sleeves or rollers on each side of the mouthpiece.
The turning cheeks have pierced and serrated decoration.
There is a brass disc and a rounded screw head on each cheek - possibly these were designed to unscrew so that the mouthpiece could be changed, but I cannot turn them.
Each cheek ends in a swivelling rein loop.
A shackle or slobber bar joins the cheeks at their lower ends.

Dimensions : Mouthpiece 4⅛" (10.5cm), Cheek length 6" (15.2cm)
Weight : 503g (1lb 2oz)
