ABOUT CARLTON FINE ART & ANTIQUES
Malcolm Gray first established Carlton Antiques in 1989 when he retired from the Police Force after 25 years service. From the outset he dealt in good quality furniture from Georgian to Edwardian, English oil paintings and watercolours and objet d’art.
In 1995 he progressed from being a sole trader and opened the Victoria Antique Centre Ltd, in Saltaire, renting space and cabinets to over 40 dealers. The Victoria Centre, though catering for all tastes and pockets was always noted for the quality of the stock on sale as well as presentation. In October 2004 Malcolm retired from the Victoria Centre and formed his own company Carlton Antiques Ltd. However he continued to work two days a week at the Victoria Centre as a consultant until November 2005 when the Victoria Centre closed.
Saltaire Village is a World Heritage site and Salt’s Mill, being the main attraction, houses a permanent exhibition of David Hockney’s paintings. Malcolm was able to take space on the third floor of the Mill.
On 3rd December 2005 he opened Carlton Fine Art and Antiques, not only selling his own stock of quality furniture and fine paintings, but with 25 other dealers selling a wide range of antiques and collectables including silver, pottery and porcelain, jewellery and much more.
In 2014 Malcolm Gray retired from running the business and former antiques dealers Alan Othick and Andrew Howden took over the centre carrying on the fine tradition of Carlton Antiques selling quality antiques for every taste and pocket.
