The other day I saw some old looking decora style duplex receptacles. They had three lines on the face and looked like may have been different size from most decora. Brand was Slater. I may pick them up if anyone wants pictures. Guessing these were very early decora.

Also some some old Sierra cover plates in weird colors, they had gray and white, which seems more modern than the era the plates were from.

Decora is a Leviton brand/trademark, the original device may have been Sierraplex from the now defunct Sierra Electric.
