The top three divided drawers handle jewelry, and the four bottom drawers are perfect for lingerie and accessories. It is designed for placing on the floor or ground and the dimensions are 20"W x 15"D x 40"H.

The applicable subheading for the Jewelry Armoire will be 9403.50.9080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for wooden furniture of a kind used in the bedroom, other. The rate of duty will be 2.5 percent ad valorem.
