1072 Malva is a minor planet orbiting the Sun discovered on October 4, 1926, by Karl Wilhelm Reinmuth. It is named after the Malva or Mallow genus, although it initially received the designation 1926 TA.

Observations performed at the Palmer Divide Observatory in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in during 2007 produced a light curve with a period of 10.080 ± 0.005 hours with a brightness range of 0.17 ± 0.02 in magnitude.[2]
