Dear Mr. Bartee:

In your letter dated November 20, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted is a broom cover composed of woven textile fabric in the shape of a horse. A small plastic sleeve is inserted through the body which will allow the handle of the broom to slide through and fit into the textile fabric tube that is attached to the top of the horse. Attached to the bottom of the horse is an 8 inch long shirt which measures approximately 18 inches in diameter at its widest point.

The applicable subheading for the broom cover will be 6307.90.9490, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles...Other, other, other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.
