Welcome to the Old Bear Museum

After years of collecting and appreciating old antique teddy bears I found I have an extensive collection of bear photographs. Chilterns, Chad Valleys, Farnell, Steiff, Jopi, Dean’s, Ideal, Bruin, in fact I have had the pleasure of meeting quite a number of these old characters from all over the world.

Some of the bears featured remain in my collection and others have moved on to new homes. But it seemed fitting to create this virtual vintage bears museum so that everyone can enjoy our heritage of these old bears and their friends.
