Some more research brought me to this wonderful piece of furniture. Designed by none other than Charles Dickens to establish his very special mode of reading his work. The table mirrors the speaker posture.

In this next image note the metal frame surrounding Dickens, evidently this was wired with gaslight and would illuminate him while speaking, this too was designed by Dickens. Managing your image quite well Mr. Dickens.
