The trademark "Globe" for fruit jars was registered by the Hemingray Glass Company on February 3, 1903, with usage claimed since February 1886. It would seem from this fact that the earliest Globe jars were made at Hemingray's Covington, Kentucky plant. In 1888, they built a new plant in Muncie, Indiana and within a few years most of their glass was made there.
