over the years im sure some of you have come to probably have a large collection of things which you like or mean something to you. I have a love of antique and things from the past! What i have been collecting slowly are antique oil lamps which i purchase in medium to bad condition at a good price then restore it to its previous beauty! i also collect wedgewood jasperware!

Years ago I was a bit of a Tegestologist.

It was a father and son thing, we would often go out on trips searching for rare examples, thoroughly enjoyable hobby.

From wikipedia i would be too drunk at the end of the night to remember to collect them lol.

Tegestology
Some beermats are collectible items. Tegestology is a Latin term defined as the practice of collecting beermats or coasters, with practitioners known as tegestologists. Collecting beermats is an especially popular hobby in Germany, where beermats are known as Bierdeckel. There is an international collector's association called IBV in Germany which has been active since 1958.

The British Beermat Collectors Society was founded shortly afterwards in 1960 and currently has around 300 members spread across the world. Like the IBV, it organises regular meetings for collectors and also publishes a monthly newsletter.

BeermatMania.com was founded in 2004 and boasts a gallery of over 42,000 images of British brewery beer mats based on the British Beermat Collectors Society numbering system. It also has a collectors forum and a monthly newsletter.

Other notable clubs associated with tegestology include two Australian clubs, the South Australian Coaster Collectors Club and New South Wales Coaster Collectors Club. There are many subcategories of tegestologists, including those who are solely interested in porcelain or other specific kinds of beermats.

For those unable to google.
It is the fine art of collecting beer mats.
It meant trips to pubs and consuming a few beers, then landlord would usually grant access to his back room where I could search through old stock of beer mats.

Newcastle Brown had a double mat, one side for the glass and tother for the topping up bottle.
Theakstones OP had some fanstastic designs.

Father generally paid. That way he knew who I was out drinking with.

Sadiq if you collected them in a state of disrepair then you have worked miracles with them. They are beautiful.

awwww thank you so much! the one in the middle, with the green shade was in the worst state! when it arrived i was my heart sank cos it looked so awful!.... the shiny brass was ALL BLACK!... i think it was never cleaned since produced. then it took me about a week slowly stripping that black colour off and now i shine it once a week to keep it gleaming!. the green shade was covered in sum browny stuff and i had to be so caerfull cleaning that!.. a nightmare!... but got there eventually!.... and then i varnished the font to stop any of the crackled glaze coming off! now its my favorite one!
