RE: The tariff classification of drinking glasses and candle holders from Romania

Dear Mr. Collini:

In your letter dated February 24, 1995, on behalf of Pitman Dreitzer, you requested a tariff classification ruling regarding various drinking glasses and glass candle holders.

Although the stem of each drinking glass appears to be colored, the body of each glass is clear. The style numbers for the drinking glasses are 60088, 60091, 60089, 60092, 60090, 60093, 60107, 60094, 60110, 60097, 60109, 60096, 60108 and 60095. The style numbers for the glass candle holders are 60101, 60114, 60102, 60115, 60103 and 60116.

Samples of two drinking glasses were submitted with your ruling request. These samples were received in broken condition. No samples of the candle holders were submitted.

In a telephone conversation with this office you indicated that the value of each drinking glass is between $1.50 and $2.00.

The applicable subheading for the drinking glasses will be 7013.29.20, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for drinking glasses, other than of glass- ceramics: other: other: valued over thirty cents but not over three dollars each. The duty rate will be 29.2 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the glass candle holders will be 9405.50.40, HTS, which provides for non-electrical lamps and lighting fittings: other: other. The duty rate will be 7.3 percent ad valorem.

Articles classifiable under subheading 9405.50.40, HTS, which are products of Romania are entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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.
