German term or phrase: anbossiert
Referring to a Meissen jug. "Der Henkel ist [an der Gefäßkörper] anbossiert, modelliert als Volute aus C- und S-Schwünge."
Heather
English translation:moulded onto
Explanation:
Bossieren is to emboss, mould or model (Cassel's). Moulding seems the best choice of the three to describe how a handle is attached to a cup, although "model" could work as well. The "an" part is just deduced, but seems very likely. Hope this helps you, Will
