F M Alexander’s table

 

Alexander's original teaching table

Alexander’s original teaching table

 

In July 2007, Alexander’s relatives put the last of his effects up for auction.  Amongst these was the table he had owned and used for teaching in his practice at Ashley Place in London SW1.  Caroline was fortunate enough to secure this historical item.  In ‘Alexander’ terms, this is the equivalent of owning Freud’s couch!

Being in poor condition, the table was restored in London by Anderson & Walters, French Polishers and Restorers.

It is understood that the table was made in 1939 for Alexander by two of his pupils, the Crossly brothers.  It is now a prized possession and is used in Caroline’s teaching practice,  Alexander Technique London.
