You’re right about the shades coming from China. The cheap ones in your picture are machine produced in clear glass with white frit. The colors are painted on after the shades are cooled. The luster shades are a different matter. Those are made by hand here in the US by Jay Redington. I know that Lundberg Studios & Carl Radke still have their tulip molds and all can be found by Googling their names. Others back east, couldn't say. You might want to also post this question on Reddit on the r/glassblowing sub. Just my 2c....
