Nathaniel Fiennes

Engraved by Hollar in 1644, the prominent parliamentarian and Lord Saye and Sele, pictured in an oval with mad hair. Fiennes looks like he just came from the battlefield with his falling band tied up with ribbon and his gorget over his buffcoat. A portrait of him in a sleeved buffcoat hangs at his ancestral home, Broughton Castle but here he has cloth sleeves attached and well braided. His coat is tied with decorative ribbons rather than the lacing which seems to go with all the museum coats still remaining.
