The total hanging height of the censer is 27 inches from the small ring on the top of the chain to the bottom of the base. The chains have 12 bells attached to them to remind us of the 12 disciples.
A Thurible is a vessel suspended by chains, and used for burning incense at solemn Mass, Vespers, Benediction, processions, and other important offices of the Church. It is also known as censer. In its prevailing shape the thurible consists of a cup which rests on a firm base and is provided with a hollow movable pan for holding ignited charcoal, a lid or covering, and four chains about three feet in length, three of which unite the bowl to a circular disc, while the fourth is used for raising the lid, to which one end is attached, the other passing through a hole in the disc and terminating in a small ring.(source: www.newadvent.org)
