RE: The tariff classification of a bone china stick pin and bone china brooches from the United Kingdom.

Dear Mr. Hughes:

In your letter dated May 12, 1994 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have not submitted samples, however you have submitted a photograph which shows five articles with their reference numbers. They are:

1. SFSP - Single flower stick pin
2. SSOB - Single spray orchid brooch
3. TFBB - Three flower brooch
4. TFHB - Three flower "horseshoe" brooch 5. FFOB - Four flower oval brooch

With the exception of article SFSP, which has a stainles steel stick pin, all of the brooches have bar-type stainless steel clasps. The flowers on the stick pin and brooches are made of bone china.

The applicable subheading for the bone china stick pin and brooches will be 7117.90.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Imitation jewelry: Other: Other: Valued over 20 cents per dozen pieces or parts. The rate of duty will be 11% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
