Sarah Jaeger’s soup tureens have generous, bulbous knobs resembling “onion domes” popular in Russian architecture. They are quite striking and look like they’d be easy to use as well.

 

It can be problematic throwing a knob on a leatherhard lid, especially a large knob and especially with porcelain.
