Very very old pushbutton light switch wallplate. I wouldn't guess it being any newer than 1915 or so.

I collect exit signs, preferably vintage ones.

I also have a little bit of a thing for light bulbs, too. Of course, hoarding them due to the incandescent bulb ban.

I like the old push button switches. I have many that still work well. Both salvaged ones as well as ones in my own house.
