The history of the snowglobe

In reference to this Straight Dope classic:

An article in The Daily recounts the history of the snowglobe. It does not, however, definitively answer the question of its name. While employing numerous synonyms, it does tend to use “snowglobe” most often – which, in my experience, is the most common term.

The English Wikipedia settles on “Snow globe”. So it seems to be decided.
