    I found this in a box a the flea market....it is metal and all welded....it has a UL stamp on it. Does anyone know anything about it maybe where it came from. I was thinking a haunted mansion maybe Disney.

      It looks like a super fancy double light switch cover. If you lay it over a double switch, do the holes line up?

      Oops. I just re-read your post. You've already figured that out!

      Yea. I just don't know where it would of come from. It's all welded metal. Thanks

      It is kinda cool, but I'm not sure I see anything "victorian" or even "halloween" about it...?

      But what it *does* look like, maybe, is somebody's 'arts and crafts' (or trade school or something?) project made using a small welder...??

      UL stampings like that are (and have been for many many years) commonly found on the front sides of ordinary galvanized steel electrical switch/outlet cover plates usually intended for use in basements/garages/etc. I'm betting that's what it started its life as, before somebody "decorated" it for some reason??

      All your pics appear to be of its front side -- what's the back look like?

      I'll post a pic of the back in a little bit
