I'm pretty sure it's a color set based on the rainbow strip, but I found this TV in an old photo from the family.

Ideas?

Looks like a RCA color mini-console (smaller than 23"V) somewhere in the CTC-17 to 25 time frame.

I think the "rainbow" is a camera flash reflecting off chrome rather than a cabinet part.

I used to have one of those sets. It's actually one of those color changing grooved plastic strips.

Thanks for identifying it, all of you! :D It's awesome to know this information. I have other pictures, but they are older and I'll need to find them.

My brother and sister in law bought the same set new in 1966, when they were married. It's an RCA colonial maple "Tea-Cart" style cabinet. It is a 19" Color set, very small console cabinet. I worked on it once, in the last few years they owned it, IIRC it was a CTC-19 chassis. My brother had the set until the middle 1980's, in the den, it's last year's. They always had RCA Factory Service work on it, and I know it's picture tube was replaced twice over the years. A 19EYP, OR 19GWP22, if I remember correctly. It was a cute little tv, and was offered to me when they were done with it, I wish I had kept it!
