The applicable subheading for the jewelry box of cotton will be 4202.92.6010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases...; traveling bags..., jewelry boxes and similar containers, with outer surface of textile materials, other, of cotton, jewelry boxes, and similar containers of a kind normally sold at retail sale with their contents. The rate of duty will be 7 percent.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Kevin Gorman at 212-466-5893.
