‘The Anglo-Indian’s Paradise’
It is appropriate that Mallams are holding their first dedicated Indian & Islamic sale in Cheltenham. Throughout the 19th Century, wealthy families settled in the town and 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’.
Robin Fisher, director says ‘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’.
