Question English Bit Name? (Not in Bit Information Thread)

Hello! This bit was donated to our barn. It appears that is is a harsh bit, and it is an english bit on a full-cheek. Out of curiosity, I was wondering if anyone knew the name of this bit or has/had one? Sorry for the poor quality, phone picture. Thank you!

English and never seen one like it - would tend to think that it is of American design.

Godawful monstrosity? If I had to describe it it would be a 'connected double squared Dr. Bristol.' Doubt that's the proper term. Wonder if it was custom made....

It probably is American manufactured, Tnavas, but I think the OP meant English as opposed to Western style of riding.

No idea.....

Looks kind of similar to this-Coronet Controller Bit - 5" Specialty and Other Bits Western HorseLoverZ.com

Either way, I just wouldn't use it.
