People have been making adornments and crockery of this metal since ancient times. In Russia such crockery was used only during rich tsars’ and boyards’ feasts. Besides the colored crockery (mainly in red) was painted with tinsel. Tinsel is thin leaves of this metal that are stuck to the places that are marked in advance. Such methods were well-known to iconographers and miniaturists, the craftsmen who decorated hand-written books with drawings and patterns.
