It measures about 6 inches in height and possesses a removable lid, serving handle and functional spout. Its lid and front exterior are adorned with a floral motif.

The applicable subheading for the "Violet Teapot" (item number 8C770-12) will be 6912.00.4810, HTS, which provides for other ceramic tableware...other than of porcelain or china...suitable for food or drink contact. The rate of duty will be 10.5 percent ad valorem.

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