Although I don't have photos of the Historic Deerfield carved Hadley Chest I do have some of the one at Memorial Hall in Deerfield.
Once I started looking into the Hadley Chests, I discovered that there were some that were "Polychrome." Just by the name, I knew I had to look into them and see what they were all about. At first I looked on my friend Google and found this video.
This is the chest that is at Memorial Hall. It looks like the paint decoration was probably touched up because it is more colorful than the 3 others that survive. Here is the one that is at the Henry Ford Museum and there is also one at Winterthur.
I love that way back in the 1600's they used motifs that look so modern. How about the "Target logo"?
So as they say, nothing is new. Everything has been done before!
Here is another article you can read about the Polychrome Chests from Hadley, Massachuestts.
