Their treasures not only stand out as objects of extraordinary beauty, but their rarity too ensures that each piece can be recognised anywhere as a sound financial investment.

What Others Say
“When in Africa, after seeing the big five beasts in the wilderness, treat your five senses with a visit to the Burr and Muir Gallery in Cape Town; you will be pleasantly surprised.To find such choice and such quality in the fields of Art Deco and Art Nouveau in such an unexpected location is to go on overdrive.Whenever I am in Cape Town a visit to Geoff Burr and Graham Muir is de rigeur. The welcome is heartfelt. The items on display and for sale are unique; rarely have I walked out empty handed from their gallery.Furthermore they have both been instrumental in helping me create my books on Chiparus, Preiss, Roland Paris and Statuettes: figures they own do appear in my books.I look forward to many more encounters with the big five in the tundras and the big two in Cape Town.”
