I think you can now get 3d printing for glass. Might be the perfect thing for the fancy oilers like the picture. Once someone gets the pattern digitized it should be pretty easy to make 'em.

On the others, I would guess just buy pyrex in the right diameter and cut-score-flame it.........

There are several sponsors of this site available at this link. Many of them sell order glasses.

Mike if you can cut it to size, McMaster Carr sells glass tubing in several diameters, then you can cut it to length. I've saved a few oilers using their glass tubes.
