Mrs Thatcher: Part III
Online 2 - 8 May 2019

This handbag is perhaps the archetypal ‘Thatcher Handbag’. It is typical of the handbags favoured by Britain’s first female Prime Minister at the time when the verb ‘Handbagging’ was coined in the mid-1980s by Julian Critchley, Conservative MP, with reference to Margaret Thatcher’s dominant ministerial style, particularly during cabinet meetings. Mrs. Thatcher was photographed carrying bags of this type on many occasions.
