RE: The tariff classification of artificial foliage pick from China.

Dear Ms. Lynch:

In your letter dated June 15, 1995, on behalf of your client Michaels Stores, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted a sample of artificial foliage pick that is identified as item no. MS147-A. The pick is composed of polyester leaves, one natural pine cone, 2 plastic fruit and 6 sprays of plastic berries on a plastic coated wire stem. It is in chief value of plastic. In our opinion the plastic component gives the spray its essential character.

The applicable subheading for the artificial foliage pick will be 6702.10.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for artificial flowers, foliage and fruit and parts thereof; articles made of artificial flowers, foliage or fruit: of plastics: other, including parts. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent 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
