Now the one company that used to dye the globes "Amber" assumed you sent "your" regular clear globe and they sent your globe dyed amber is out of business, now what you do to get amber gloves besides E bay? There once was A company that did custom dying like amber, red or frosted the gloves for you don't remember the web site. Any clues?

James, I believe the company you're referring to is Jaffe, and although they're still in business, they have discontinued doing colored globes.  IIRC, the issue is that they have a patent on the process, so no one else can do it; at least not using their process.  I'm not aware of any other company manufacturing colored globes, but maybe someone else will chime in.

I did business with JAFE when this whole thing blew up and I can supply some perspective.
The problem was the "Hecho En Mexico" glass. It did not absorb the color as well as the US and German glass Coleman had been using. Amber became "nutmeg" and red became brown. The glass produced "chording" or strands of darker color. The finished product was ugly.
Far as I know the amber and red are different stages of the same color. JAFE told me that they had always made them for Coleman. They dyed finished globes with the logo's already on them.
The Korean sellers on ebay have amber and sky blue globes for sale. That is likely dyed glass with the dye mixed in to the raw material before the glass is made,

OK, working In the electronics field I have access to rolls of 2" mylar (think it is spelled right) amber tape. It will stick to glass and will not melt when exposed to high heat. Any thoughts? Rolls of this kind of tape are expensive and not readily available to the public....

If you use the forum search function you will find previous post on the tinting of lantern globes. There are amber/yellow glass tinting materials available, but you will need to heat the globes up to ~1100 deg. for the tint to fuse to the glass. As to the company that did the tinting, I don't think their patent was ever granted, and that patent was not for the tinting process, but for using a tinted globe as a bug deterrent.

The very thought of a globe dying makes me very sad.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.
