Creation Date



Glen Lily [5 pounds, paper flour bag] produced by the Garrard Mills in Lancaster, Kentucky. The bag was manufactured by the Werthan Bag Company of Nashville, Tennessee. The Glen Lily bag features a calla lily and a decorative cartouche accented with tiny blue flours. Best patent refers to the fact that this flour is produced from the center portion of the endosperm. Extra short or fancy and first patent flours are made from soft wheat and are used for cake flours, thus the Glen Lily bag declares this "best patent' flour as "best for cake & pastry; best for biscuits."
