With a hook at the end of the handle for hanging.

A peel is a shovel-like tool used by bakers to slide loaves of bread and other baked goods into and out of an oven. With a flat carrying surface (like a shovel’s blade) for holding the baked goods and a handle extending from one side of that surface. The word presumably derives from the French ‘pelle’, which describes both a peel and a shovel.
Bibliography: Lindsay J. Seymour, 'Iron and Brass Implements of the English House' (Tiranti and Co, 1970), Figure 154 illustrates an eighteenth Century wrought-iron slice from the author’s collection, which is of similar design and height to our bread peel.
