One of the days I visited a glass artist friend (she is 80 years old) to photograph her works for the book I am writing on the contemporary Hungarian glass (will be published in English). During my browsing I came across this piece. You would say it is Kralik or something else from that region, but she told me that it is from Zajugroc! She had the full provenance. Zajugroc was part of Hungary until 1920 where for example Pantocsek developed the iridescent glazing technique in the 1850s (for more info see

First of all, very nice example of a covered box.

I appreciate the piece you have posted here, but I think that along the way, the provenance of the example may have actually been distorted somehow. Although the piece is attributed to Hungarian glass, this décor can be found in production by Rindskopf. It is a little different from the Kralik version in that it is more textural on the surface. In addition to that, the actually form of this piece can be found in an Aventurine décor by Rindskopf. the Aventurine décor is pretty distinctive, so there is not really any mistaking who made the piece.

This first link is an example of this covered piece in the distinctive Aventurine décor by Rindskopf.

This next link shows the Corrugated décor.

I have been told that glass is my mistress......

Beautiful piece Brain.  Your egg is definitely a corrugated decor.  The question is who made it.  If the finish is smooth, it was made by Kralik, but if it's textured where you can feel the ridges, it's Rindskopf.  If you google Kralik corrugated phgotos, you'll find some examples.
