Questions from the following items from the Inventory of Henry VIII
These examples are dog collars and leashes (Lyam) with rings to tie the
leash to (tirettes), but what is stoleworke? It is also spelled stool work,

ITEM 11175 PAGE 248 Item a dogs collar of stoole work with turwittes and
buckles silver white
