Where to find an asian table lamp with a paper shade with real butterflies embossed upon it?

When my son was an infant, we bought an asian table lamp in San Francisco's Chinatown for his room. It had a rectangular shade made of paper, with a bamboo frame for the four sides, and somehow embossed into the paper were real butterflies. Over the course of years, the lamp has been lost. Does anyone know where we could find another beautiful lamp like this? I've looked online but have found no leads. Thanks in advance!

Here is a rough sketch of what the lamp looked like.
