Dear Mr. Offin:

In your letter dated April 21, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise consists of bowl-shaped brass containers of various sizes. The containers will have a smooth polished finish or a ball peen hammer finish.

The applicable subheading for the containers will be 7418.10.2090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for table, kitchen, or other household articles of brass. The rate of duty will be 3.7 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.
