Stolpetrøye frå Gloppen kommune der krossane i stolpane dannar diagonaleffekt. Det er berre til å gje seg over og la seg inspirere av rikdomen i mønstervariasjonar. Stolpetrøya er ikkje i museet si samling.

"An embroidered glove of red knitted silk, probably liturgical, probably English, first half 17th century with wide low gauntlet of gold embroidered and couched thread flowerheads with looped and couched petals, chain stitched lozenges, large single tassel to one side, 24 cm long"
