Saw this tankard today, ummed and arred for ages and then took the plunge. So here it is, orange textured glass body with a small polished pontil and amber glass handle. Looks like mould blown (two part) and note the paler colour right at the rim. Stands 12cm tall and body is 9 cm in diameter.

Any info that anyone can help with for this peculiar but lovely tankard would be great.

Thanks, John.

How wonderful that you have identified it yourself, John....great satisfaction, and now you have a pair!  :rah:  
I would never have guessed Lindshammar, and the only work I have ever seen of Sjögren, is the lovely plaques he made. :sun:

Very nice pieces, John!
Great that you found an ID for them...

Here and here are Sjögren vases which seem to be related to your tankards.

I own a vase which I managed to attribute (with the help of Ivo) to Christer Sjögren for Lindshammar: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,40464.0.html
It's one of my favourite pieces of glass :)

They fit in rather well with your Hoglund stuff too, John........ are you branching out?  >:D

Thanks guys, I had not found those related vases but I did bump into this bunch on starkeld while checking out Sjögren: http://www.starkeld.com/prod_img/normal/5246%20Lindshammar%201.jpg

I no longer have that first tankard - it was caught up in a clear out some time ago. I just took those photos yesterday of the second tankard, I have enough odd or unidentified glasses as it is. :o
