Cooking with an antique game rack

Our antique game racks are fully functional and can be used for cooking in the hearth or on a stove, adding both utility and historical flair to your culinary space.

Origin of the game racks

Mostly originating from the Netherlands and France, our game racks are revered pieces of kitchen history, primarily dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. They are meticulously crafted from wrought iron.

Appreciating the craftsmanship

Each game rack is hand-forged by skilled artisans, making every piece unique. Their antique nature not only demonstrates remarkable craftsmanship but also offers longevity, making them a sustainable alternative to modern equivalents.

Consider the size of the game rack

Our game racks vary in size, number of hooks, and spacing between hooks, which should be considered based on what you intend to hang. The dimensions of a rack should complement the space it occupies—larger racks suit bigger spaces, while smaller ones are perfect for more compact areas. Our collection allows for selections based on length, width, and depth to ensure a perfect fit for your space.

The decorative appeal of a game rack

An antique game rack isn't just practical—it's also a striking decorative element in any kitchen. Their robust wrought iron construction can be styled to enhance a rustic look with items like copper pans or can be softened with more elegant hangings. Mixing and matching various items or foodstuffs on the rack can create an intriguing visual display. For more decorating ideas, including how to enhance an unused hearth, read this article.
