A special request

Hello to you, dear ladies (and the occasional gentleman...) from our (currently very rainy) corner of the world.

Today, I would like to make a special request of you (on behalf of my husband actually). We used to have a very lovely set of wineglasses, simple in design but made special by the delicate thinness (around 1mm at the rim) and exquisite clearness of the glass. I have placed a photo of one of them below, with a matchbox next to it for proportion. 

Most wineglasses sold today are either huge (250cc) or tiny shot glasses, while these contain around 100cc, and have a lovely curved design. We are looking for such, made of either glass or crystal. 
This is the only surviving glass of the original set. We've been wanting to buy more of these for years, but can't find them anywhere. If any of you knows where to get/buy/order similar wineglasses, please do drop us a line.

I thank you in advance, wish you a wonderful weekend and leave you with the hopes of talking to you again soon.

I think what you are looking for is a dessert wine glass, which is tapered. You could also search for a 100 ml port glass. You might even find them used on ebay. Here's a link: http://www.barstuff.com/spirit-and-liqueur-glasses/port-bar-liqueur-104ml.html

I found the same link as the first commenter, and that's the closest thing I could find without visiting local shops, which would do you no good really. :-/ But they are correct, you are looking for dessert wine glasses. Sorry to not be much help!
