This hand holds a paper addressed "To the Hon:ble Francis Lord Verulam Ld. Chancller of England". Bacon is shown wearing a doublet and black gown, the sleeves embroidered in gold, with white lace cuffs. He wears a round white ruff and a black hat at a slight angle. Bacon has long, natural hair with a beard and is presented against a background of red drapery.
