Mallams will hold its first dedicated Indian and Islamic sale in Cheltenham on Wednesday 12 September 2018.
Throughout the 19th century, wealthy families settled in the town; so many of them had served in the colonies – in the Army, Navy, East India Company or Civil Service – that by the end of the century one writer could describe Cheltenham as ‘the Anglo-Indian’s paradise’.
Highlights include 18th Century Ottoman coats, 15th-19th Century Timurid tiles, Safavid & Kutahya pottery, Persian rugs, Indian miniatures and Anglo-Indian furniture.
Speaking about the sale, Mallams’ director Robin Fisher said: ‘I am delighted with the response to the sale. We have a vast wealth of interesting objects locally and Mallams have been strong in this field. A dedicated sale seemed the logical development and we will be building on it in the future.’
Viewing for this auction is available from 10am to 3pm on Friday 7 September; and 9am to 5pm on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 September 2018.
