Few know that Margaret Thatcher’s final resting place is in the grounds of the Royal Hospital and it is sad to note that flowers are placed there irregularly. Now, though, fans of this iconic powerhouse have an opportunity to buy items once owned by her in an online auction and here The Steeple Times chooses three of the best.

 

Lot 201: Mrs Thatcher’s Parliamentary Secretary’s Dispatch Box – Estimate: £1,500 to £2,500

Three of the Best: The Iron Lady goes onlineMade by Barrow, Hepburn & Gale, this black canvas simulated leather travel dispatch box was used by Margaret Thatcher between 1961 and 1964. It is gilt embossed and features the cypher of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II above the words: “Parliamentary Secretary Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance”.

 

Lot 243: A sapphire blue wool crepe suit by Acquascutum – Estimate: £1,200 to £1,800

Three of the Best: The Iron Lady goes online

Made circa 1989, this suit is typical of the Iron Lady’s style. We could just see Baroness Pidding in it and urge her to put in a bid.

 

Lot 428: Handbag by Raflo – Estimate: £ 1,000 to £1,500

Three of the Best: The Iron Lady goes onlineUsed by Lady Thatcher on her last visit to 10 Downing Street in 2010, this early 21st century handbag should be in the V&A. Despite their having previously rejected the opportunity to purchase items relating to Britain’s greatest Prime Minister, they really ought to ensure this item is saved for the nation.

 

The auction – which is being conducted by Christie’s – concludes on 16th December 2015.

    1. Leftyism is rife. It’s a sign of the times that the V & A is refusing Margaret Thatcher’s most iconic possessions. It goes with the dismaying messages such as “labour is the only party that wants us to live” and “conservatives are evil” indoctrination going on in our children’s schools right now.

    2. This junk should be burnt. Maggie T brought evil to Britain with her cruel, heavy handed style of leadership. She destroyed communities and nobody should remember her as anything other than a vicious psycho.
