I completed restoration of a General Electric / Telechron 1L1215 15-inch glass illuminated metal case wall clock from early 1941. Clock was stripped, de-rusted and repainted; all electronics and wiring save the field coil were replaced (two layers of 3M 27 glass cloth tape, two 5-watt corn type LEDs, new working pull switch, RF-controlled wireless light switch kit to power on and off the LEDs as an alternative to the pull switch, dried out/crumbling rubber gasket replaced with new foam, B2 rotor replaced, original parts saved for sake of completion). This one is definitely a keeper!

Any idea how many of these clocks were produced? I've only seen a few example photos of this clock (though I've seen more of similar clocks like the 1L715 Telechron model).

I can't help with your question, but want to say that is a very nice restoration you have accomplished there. Well done!
