In the Paris World Exhibition in 1900 he exhibited briefly his only designated Tiffany lamps light objects. Different colour glass, artfully designed bronze feet and sensual erotic figures make the commodities become works of art special stimulus. The stem glasses in calyx shape, its bulbous vases, as well as the famous church stained glass windows show great colours and shapes.
