The Niello technique dates to the time of the ancient Egyptians, who are credited with its creation. Spreading throughout Europe during the Iron Age, it was widely used as a decorative technique in the Renaissance period. In 19th and 20th century Russia, Niello works were crafted in the town of Tula, leading to the term "Tula silver".
