An outdoor lantern, just like a lamp post, helps you illuminate the outdoors. A lantern usually refers to a lamp having a transparent outer covering so as to protect the flame or bulb inside, and it typically comes with a handle by which it is carried or hung. Outdoor lanterns, along with lighting up your outdoors, furnish your house and give it a royal elegance. The outer covering of a lantern is generally made up of glass or crystal and defines the beauty of the light fixture. Intricate outdoor lanterns increase the charm of your outdoor surroundings and enhance the overall beauty of your house.
