About The Port Collection

I was born into the world of Teddy Bears and dolls. You see, my mother, Beverly Port started collecting in the 1950s. I carry on the Port family tradition. I have written hundreds of articles on Teddy Bears, for many international publications. My most famous would be the "Bear Sleuth" column written for Teddy Bear Review magazine. I was co-publisher of "Teddy Today" magazine, from 1997-2004. Many bears from my collection have been pictured in books worldwide. I love to share my knowledge by presenting programs, and I provide Teddy Bear identification, at shows around the country. I also sell at various shows to pay for my "Teddy Bear habit." My collection consists of a variety of mohair comfort - from the pristine Steiff to the well-loved Ted with some antique dolls as well. I love them all! I love spreading the joy of Teddy Bear and doll collecting, so here is the Port Collection. I present to you an array of antique Teddy Bears, Steiff animals, toys, dolls, dolls accessories and Teddy Bear ephemera. I try to find something for every taste, so an occasional artist bear will appear as well - maybe one of my originals. I am a member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs (UFDC) and the National Antique Doll Dealer Association (NADDA), and I stand behind everything I sell. I also take on consignment pieces, please contact me if you have something for sale. Enjoy this journey down Teddy Bear lane! Happy Bear Hunting! John
