These are a couple 'picks' today - a Hemingray blue #12 (this color is NOT easy to find on the older Hemingray or even H. G. Co. insulators with sharp drip points) and a glass block made by Hemingray (the key identifying feature is the '86' factory code along with the Owens-Illinois logo).

Insulators were their bread and butter, but they also made bottles, jars, and kerosene lamps before the Owens-Illinois takeover in 1933. After the takeover, they continued to make some bottles, these blocks, and possibly meter covers. After insulator production ended in 1967, the factory made faceplates for black & white CRTs until shutting down in 1972. The factory on south Macedonia Ave. in Muncie, IN still stands (the Ball jar factory was across the street).
