Some people take filling the gap around boxes just a little too far.

Now the mystery will be, is the receptacle in a box or was it just directly buried in the plaster?

Errrm, let me guess! No cover plate but all papered over and then painted over the wallpaper? Think I've occasionally seen that method.
