https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seal_of_Solomon

Quote:
The hexagram or "Star of David", which became a symbol of Judaism in the modern period and was placed on the flag of Israel in 1948, has its origins in 14th-century depictions of the Seal of Solomon. In 1354, King of Bohemia Charles IV prescribed for the Jews of Prague a red flag with both David's shield and Solomon's seal, while the red flag with which the Jews met King Matthias of Hungary in the 15th century showed two pentagrams with two golden stars.[7]

Peter de Abano's Heptameron (1496) makes reference to the "Pentacle of Solomon" (actually a hexagram drawn on the floor in which the magician has to stand) to invoke various demons.[8]

Try googling the address and see if you can find any history on it.  Chances are you might find something

Wires were cut below floor but I thought something to do with making lights flickering during a seance type thing.

A switch under floorboards to turn it on off?

Not sure how it would work though?

Client has asked if it could be wired back in as a parlour trick?

Any idea what these other wires were connected to?

I've seen something similar on some TV program, the name of which escapes me, but it did get used for spiritual feelings and somehow killed someone, or something along those lines, or maybe that was 2 programs using the same idea.

Looks like the star of David, so could be connected to the occult.

All sat round in a circle and someone flips a switch and the lights dim  Grin

Some sort of early capacitive switch affair?

Someone got the wrong end of the stick trying to add an earth?

Gonna post some pics of something I found in ald hose we were working in.

Lifted rug in centre of dining room and found a hatch in floor with a piece of lead inlaid to it. once we lifted it we realised it was 4 individual squares that were cross connected underneath. there were wires and a switch lying cut underneath and one of the wall lights we had removed to rewire had a single cable in addition to the lead twin?

anyone got ideas or come across something like this before?

Cheers SS
