German term or phrase: Scheibenknauf
On the lid of a Meissen cream jug: "Der Deckel ist leicht gewölbt und mit Scheibenknauf bekrönt."
Heather
English translation:circular handle
Explanation:
A Knauf is technically a knob and in this case, it is disk-shaped. You could, of course, also go with round, but either way, I wouldn't actually write "knob" as I have only ever heard them described as handles, even if they're on the top of the lid. Hope you're getting paid well for this, Heather. ; ) You should charge them extra for each question you have! HTH, Will
