This color wheel assembly was part of a color converter made about 1950 to be used with the CBS color system. It was attached to a housing which contained a 10 inch black and white CR. The complete converter was attached to a black and white receiver.. We have only the motor assembly. It was donated to the museum by Dave Johnson.
