What kind of bit is this?

Okay, I found this bit on a website and am really confused.

Okay first what is it? I have seen double mouthpieces, never triple. I don't ever see anyone using that on a horse. How effective would it be? Or more importantly what effect are you going for?

Anybody have anyclue?

How weird! Never seen anything like that, seems like it would be a mouthful for the poor horse. Can't wait to see what other people will say, hopefully someone knows.

A triple french link? I have no clue. The metal looks a tad thin to be a french link.

I've seen this same discussion on another forum and the final consensus was that, hopefully, it's not a functional bit and instead a decorative piece. Trying to guess what it's sitting on--possibly a helmet? And it's not to scale for a horse's mouth. If it's on a couch, different story. I seriously hope it was never used, anyway.

I'd second Bubba as it looks like the mouthpieces are spaced too far apart to fit comfortably in a horse's mouth. (But then again, there are people who think combonation gag bits are perfectly safe on a horse )
I'd say its a decorative bit.

If its an actual bit I would asumme that it's a Dr. Bristol. I've never seen another bit that has that joint unless it's Dr. Bristol. Most horses hate Dr. Bristols anyways since the joint always digs into their tounge. I can't imagine putting three mouthpieces in a horse let alone three Dr. Bristol.
