Richard Westwood-Brookes, Historical Documents Specialist for Mullock's Auctioneers said that around 550 items would be auctioned, of which about 200 are related to India and of these around 60 are related to Mahatma Gandhi, including the charkha, the draft of his will and some of his letters, besides other items.
"Mahatma Gandhi had devised a portable spinning wheel that folds into a bundle about the size of a portable typewriter. This was a most personal possession of Gandhiji during his years in prison fighting for the independence of his country. Richard said.
The charkha used by Gandhi while he was in the prison at Pune during India’s freedom struggle, was given to the American Free Methodist missionary Revd Floyd A Puffer.
"The auction will begin at 1pm GMT at Ludlow Racecourse, Shropshire on November 5. While the draft of Gandhi's will is clearly one of the major documents of the 20th century, we expect that to make £30,000 and his spinning wheel which he used to spin the thread to make his own clothing while in prison in the 1920s is expected to make £60,000," he told HT.
Mullock's is Europe's premier auction house specialising in sporting collectables, fishing memorabilia, historical documents and ephemera.
Personally, Richard said he wanted these to be obtained by either the Indian Government or by someone who will make it available for Indian culture and heritage for years to come.
