In Neo-Romanesque style.
The lid has an architectural structure, dome shaped with a church tower on top with windows which also function as smoke-drift channels, like the openings in the dome.
The holder has a chiselled decor of lilies and acorns on 3 sides.
In the doctrine of the emblems, the lily is a symbol of the Virgin Mary, of purity and virginity.
The acorn, like the oak leaf, refers to oak. This wood was considered indestructible and was therefore the symbol of immortality, perseverance and strength. The oak was also the symbol of immortality and eternal life.

A censer or thurible (turibulum or thuribulum in Latin) is a vessel in which incense is burned.
Usually, it consists of a bowl with a lid. Three chains are attached to the bowl so that the censer can be carried around during worship or hung from a stand. A fourth chain is attached to the lid. With this chain the lid can be pulled up to add more incense. This is done by putting incense granules on glowing coals.
The altar boy who carries the thurible is the thurifer.
A censer usually has three outer chains (for the Holy Trinity) on the bowl/cupa, and a fourth necklace (for the unity of God) attached to the lid.
