English: Lanterns (ligting devices) are fixed or portable protective enclosures for a light source with sides of any kind of material (usually glass, but also horn, pierced metal, paper ...) allowing light to emerge [1]. Portable lanterns may have a carrying handle, pedestal lanterns stand on the ground or on a table and might top a lamp post pole or lamp post bracket. Suspended lanterns are equipped with a hanging device. Sky lanterns are temporary flying paper lanterns.
  • Images of lamp posts and street lights also show lanterns, however this category should only contain files where the lantern, i.e. the enclosure of the light source is the dominant element of the image and clearly distinguishable.
