There may be no image but read the item description. The Registered Design number is identical.

Pelham-type bit with a fluted mouth bar, a rod running through a hole pierced at each end. A ring surrounds this joint, with flat bars below pierced with slots, and a small ring above. A double chain is clipped onto the top ring. Another chain with jointed segments is clipped on and has a loop and (for a leading rein?). Impressed mark; 'Reg. No. 115751' and 'Steel'.
