Living History & Cooking


Andrew Kirkham

I have over 30 years experience making historically accurate tools and domestic ironwork and some decorative work too. Everything I make is produced from the appropriate grades of steel and made to be used! I undertake commissions from individuals and groups along with museums or companies. I can also provide “have a go” blacksmith days and I have a portable forge for demonstrating. 

Find me on Facebook to see more photos and information.

The Merchant Venturers

Welcome to The Merchant Venturers (International) Ltd. We sell a range of interesting and authentic quality products. Arms and armour, Glassware, and various living history equipment.


Merchant Venturers started out as a hobby many years ago. From selling only glass we have expanded throughout the years into a range of interesting authentic and quality products.


We are proud to say we have possibly the largest selection of historical glass outside the Czech Republic!. All the glass we offer are copies of originals, all authenticated and all hand blown. We find the glassblowers on our trips to the Czech to personally get to know them and see the time, skill and work that goes into creating these little treasures of glass, true works of art.

We offer you high quality products and we strive to look for authenticity of each and every single one of these items.

Many of our glass and pewter goblets have been featured in movies like Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Snow white and the Huntsman, and Hit Series like Game Of Thrones, Outlander, The Vikings, Witcher.

Besides glass we sell arms, armour, tapestries, leather goods and forged items.



We make use of a variety of natural materials to bring you our extensive collection of items. Our raw supplies are sourced ethically from renewable resources, often recycling a ’waste’ product from the meat industry and as a result preventing it from ending up in landfill. The majority of our finished products are biodegradable and/or recyclable, making a truly ecological product.

We use recycled or 100% recyclable packaging and re-use to reduce waste.
