early 18th century (denoting a tureen): from French, literally 'large earthenware pot', from terrin 'earthen'. Compare with tureen.

More
  • tureen from (mid 18th century):

    The original form of tureen was terrine, from a French word for a large earthenware pot that goes back to Latin terra ‘earth’, source of terrace, territory, and many other words. From its arrival in the early 18th century terrine referred both to a pot and its contents, but not long after its arrival the ‘cooking pot’ sense began to be spelled tureen, perhaps influenced by the city of Turin in north-western Italy.
