The Depression had restricted Tiffany & Co.'s work in the Art Deco style, but the finest of it was showcased in the House of Jewels Pavilion at the 1939 New York World's Fair. The principal designer for that group was Arthur Leroy Barney. He had joined Tiffany & Co. in 1906 and became head designer by 1919, a position he held until his death in 1955.
