I’m reading about the etymology of Polish word “filiżanka” (because what might be better to do on Saturday night).

It comes from Romanian “filigean” which comes from Ottoman Turkish فنجان‎ (fincan) that comes from Persian فنجان‎ (fenjân) which came from classical Persian پنگان‎ (pengân). ☕️

@copyme Filiżanki mam z zestawu ślubnego rodziców, bo od ponad 40 lat leżały nieużywane w piwnicy.

@prz80 Piękny garnitur! 🤩A etymologia fascynująca. "Niczego mi proszę pana/Tak nie żal jak porcelany".
