Fun Trivia
While nearly anything is produced in collectible format these days, most quizzes in this category are about the well-known, long-standing fields of coin, banknote, stamp, postcard and toy collecting. However, we just as much enjoy quizzes about less common collectibles, so if it has an established market, it just might be found here.

(Baseball card lovers: You can find your hobby under Sports, Baseball. Just follow the redirect link below.)

Collectibles Trivia Questions

1. What German toy manufacturer produces the plastic farm animal Farm Life Series that includes Holstein and Braunvieh cows?

From Quiz
Some People Collect Cows

Answer: Schleich

Schleich manufactures plastic animals as part of its Farm Life series, which includes cows, pigs, chickens and other farm animals. The company was founded in 1935 by Friedrich Schliech in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany. It is one of Europe's largest toy manufacturers and a major international supplier of plastic animal figurines. Bruder is best known for toy trucks. Hape specializes in wooden toys. Steiff manufactures stuffed toys, and has some stuffed cows in its inventory.

2. What is collected by a phillumenist? Assuming they are full, a very handy collection to have when the lights go out.

From Quiz What Are Those?

Answer: Matchbooks

A phillumenist collects matchbooks or matchbox labels. The etymology of the word: phil- [Love of] -{English} lumen- [Light] -{Latin}.

3. Intricately carved wooden spoons given as a love token have come to be associated with which country of the United Kingdom?

From Quiz Want To Spoon With Me?

Answer: Wales

Although Scandinavian and some European countries also have a tradition of carved wooden spoons, these love spoons have come to be known as Welsh love spoons. Originally they were given as a token of love, but also as a demonstration to the father of the intended bride that her husband was skilled in woodworking and could support the family. They incorporate traditional emblems, such as hearts for love, bells for marriage, horseshoes for luck. Many were carved by sailors and these usually have an anchor somewhere on them. The earliest known one in the United Kingdom is dated 1667 and is in a museum in Cardiff. There is an older one in Germany, dated 1664, which is the oldest one known in the world. Today these spoons are very much a craft item. The decoration on them makes them impractical as a functional item. They are bought as souvenirs and given as birthday or Christmas presents, or as a love gift on Valentine's day.

4. The first cap I pull out of the box is one featuring a giant scallop in the front. The colour of the scallop is yellow with a red background. What oil and gas company has provided me with this cap?

From Quiz Capping My Collection

Answer: Shell

The cap I found belongs to the company known as Royal Dutch Shell. The oil and gas producer is more commonly referred to simply as Shell. The company has been founded in 1907 as the Royal Dutch Petroleum Company and the Shell Transport and Trading Company Ltd merged. It has since grown to become one of the largest energy companies in the world. The company logo of Shell is a giant yellow scallop, apparently a sea shell called Pecten Maximus. This logo was created in 1971. The brand name "Shell" refers to one of the two companies involved in the original merger. One of the founders' father used to have a company selling sea shells to collectors in the city of London. The sea shells were mostly collected from the area around the Caspian Sea, which gave the son of the owner the idea to start exporting oil from that region.

5. In what ancient culture were shoes the focal point of a wedding?

From Quiz Waiting For The Other Shoe To Drop

Answer: Anglo-Saxon

In ancient Anglo-Saxon weddings a pair of shoes was as important as the wedding ring is now. Rings were not exchanged between bride and groom. Instead, the bride passed her shoes to the groom who would then take the shoes and tap the bride on the head with them. This symbolized that wherever the groom went the bride would follow.

6. What name is given to the collecting of beermats?

From Quiz The History and Collecting of Beermats

Answer: Tegestology

The name is derived, by some slightly contrived etymology, from the Latin word "teg", meaning a small rug or mat. Beermat collectors are thus known as "tegestologists".

7. According to Snapple Cap #811, what are the dots on a domino called?

From Quiz Snapple Caps "Real Facts" the Sequel

Pips are used on dice as well as dominoes. The new Snapple "Real Facts" start at #673. "Real Fact" #673 deals with turtle reproduction. All of these "Real Facts" in this quiz are actually real facts, so don't worry, the answers are out there.

8. What item commonly found on jeans, does the Zippo get its name from?

9. What does a cartophilist collect?

From Quiz Hobby "Collectionistas"

10. What is the name of the very first Limited Edition figurine offered to Collectors Society members?

From Quiz Swarovski Crystal Figurines

Answer: The Lovebirds

Priced at £85 in the UK the price has since soared, steadying at around £2,600. This is because of its rarity. It was not issued Globally, but was restricted to English speaking Countries, so collectors in other Countries wanting to complete their Trilogy have pushed up the secondary market price.

11. The painting by Carl Spitzweg which is known as "The Bookworm" portrays what type of enthusiast?

From Quiz Name the Collector/Enthusiast

17. When writing to a celebrity, you should try to provide a ___________________ with your letter.

From Quiz Autograph Collecting

Answer: Self-addressed envelope

Including a self-addressed envelope means that your chosen celebrity doesn't need to go into the hassle of finding a suitable envelope and writing your address. Unless it is a gift, celebrities never require a teddy bear, a map or a roll of stamps.

18. Which material is most often seen in collections of early (18th- and 19th-century) caddy spoons?

From Quiz My Tea, Please, Caddy

Answer: Silver

There are several reasons for this. Silver caddy spoons were extremely fashionable, so large numbers of them were made. Their lightness meant they were less expensive than most types of silverware. They tended to have personal and sentimental significance, so they were also more likely to be saved as heirlooms. Probably many more spoons in less expensive materials were made, but then discarded over the years. Other materials used included wood, horn, tortoiseshell, bone, ivory, natural sea shells, mother-of-pearl, coconut shell, stone, ceramics, and glass. Old Sheffield plate spoons (rolled silver fused onto copper plate) were a speciality of Sheffield. Close-plated and electroplated spoons can also be found. Modern caddy spoons are sometimes silver or silverplated, but many are brass. Even plastic is still used! Descriptions and history of the caddy spoon are as documented in "Caddy Spoons, an Illustrated Guide" (published 1988) and "Caddy Spoons, an Illustrated Supplement," (1998) both by John Norie, who was an avid collector and painstaking historian. He was quite literally "the man who wrote the book" on his subject. His work remains the definitive reference. Unfortunately, the books are out of print, and in great demand by collectors, so they command very high prices. After his death, Norie's collection was sold at auction in 2004.
