(A) that are valued almost as much as that of the old-fashioned glass-blowers that remain - pronoun error
(B) of a value that is almost as much as that of the old-fashioned glass-blowers that remain - pronoun error
(C) almost as much in value as those of the remaining old-fashioned glassblowers - modifier error
(D) almost as much in value as that of the remaining old-fashioned glass-blowers - Modifier + pronoun error
(E) valued almost as much as those of the remaining old-fashioned glassblowers - Correct

Singular pronoun that cannot refer to plural vessels, hence the use of that is wrong in options a,b,d
In option c as much in is the wrong idiom, option e corrects all the above mistakes
