Powder horn inscribed "Aaron Page.....," attributed to the Selkirk-Page carver. Page served in the same company as Nathaniel Selkrig (#24) during the campaigns of 1757, 1758, and 1762. His horn is almost identical to Selkrig's but has less verse, only one scene of foot soldiers, and more floral and vine designs. The horn is beautifully scalloped 6 inches from the tip. Its throat is splintered and remnants of a raised ring inches from the tip remain. Its spout is slightly flared and slightly faceted.
