Hand blown glass oil lamps and candle holders?

Quite a few years ago I started collecting specific blown glass candle holders and oil lamps, they are tie dye in color and very thin glass. I have been unable to find anymore of them in many years and was wondering if anyone had any idea where to find some online so I can expand my collection. Here is the link to the only website I found, so you have a picture to go by. This exact style, but in any color http://www.werbeyondcandles.com/images/oil_lamp_red.jpg
most of them have stickers on the bottom that say "flame glow" if that helps at all

Do you know where I can find a Grappa with a hand blown glass airplane inside the bottle?

I have seen one in the window of a Manhattan liquor store, but I cannot recall where. Has anyone seen it? A grappa bottle with glass grapes inside may help, because I just need the stopper (which my husband has broken!!!)
I know you can get them from AA duty free, but you have to be flying.
