For other uses, see Lantern.

A Lantern is a miscellaneous item mostly used for decoration in Skyrim.


Old rusty lanterns can be found by the Dragonborn throughout Skyrim. Lanterns that are lit and hanging on walls cannot be interacted with; however, non-lit lanterns are scattered around and may be sold to a general store or used as a decoration in the Dragonborn's house. Unlike torches, they cannot be used as a light source.
