Baker's rack

by Timothy Oulton


Inspired by the industrious baker’s rack. With a rich history dating back to the 17th century, baker’s racks were originally used in French bakeries to cool loaves of bread, and later adopted in England. 

Baker’s racks were a common fixture in Victorian kitchens and evolved into functional storage and display pieces for both kitchens and living spaces, infusing a room with heritage, charm, and character. Our Baker’s Rack bookcase is handcrafted in chunky planks of reclaimed oak, weathered over a century of use to create a beautiful patina unique to each piece. Iron bars stretch across the back of each shelf and heavy castors give a nod to the original baker’s racks, which would have been wheeled from the oven to tempt patrons with delicious, freshly baked fare.

Made to order and International items

Given the breadth of range and the customization options available on a number of our items, holding stock is not an option beyond our best sellers. As a high proportion of our collections are made overseas, there are varying lead times depending on production times, country of origin, shipping, seasonality, and other factors outside of our control. We will provide you with an estimated lead time at time of enquiry and provide you with regular updates once an order has been placed, produced, shipped, and available for delivery.

Please contact Dawson and Co to confirm availability and lead time.
