In my travels across Skyrim, I've encountered a handful of items which possess particular value. A Dwemer Puzzle Cube here, a Jeweled Candlestick there… normally such things are hard to find buyers for, but Delvin's always been there to take them off my hands.

Unfortunately, he also plays his cards close to his chest and doesn't seem inclined to simply ask for particular items, seeming to prefer I stumble across them naturally. I, however, do not. I intend to be running this merry band of thieves soon and want a well-stocked trophy case.

What, and where, are all the special items Delvin is seeking?

1 Answer 1


The items Delvin will buy off you are:

  • Queen Bee Statue in the Goldenglow Estate
  • Honningbrew Decanter in the Honningbrew Meadery
  • East Empire Shipping Map in the East Empire Company Warehouse
  • Model Ship in the Snow Veil Sanctum
  • Dwemer Puzzle Cube in Calcelmo's Laboratory through the Dwemer Museum
  • Bust of the Gray Fox in Riftweald Manor
  • Left Eye of the Falmer which is found on Mercer's body during the quest Blindsighted

  • This list doesn't seem to be complete. If nothing else, I've found a Jeweled Candlestick (I've forgotten where I've picked it up) and sold it to Delvin. It appears on the "display shelves" in the cistern, just like the items listed here.

  • @BenBlank Those objects are for Vex, not Delvin, as detailed here uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:The_Burglary_Job

  • As far as I'm aware, those don't show up on the trophy shelves. I thought I picked it up before joining the Thieves Guild, as well. Hmm.

  • @BenBlank As seen here: uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Thieves_Guild_(faction)#Larceny_Targets they do begin to show up on the shelf, not sure exactly when they show up, but they do.

    @agf — I guarantee that you can turn them in out-of-order; I've done so. TES quest stages aren't a sequence of steps, they're a collection of flags. You can't unset a flag, but you can set them in any order. (Though most quests don't do that.)
