RE: The tariff classification of #91100 polyresin patchwork reindeer from China.

Dear Ms. Smith:

In your letter dated June 17, 1997 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample you provided is a stylized reindeer statue approximately 7.5" in height. It is marked "Made In China" with a adhesive label. In your Letter you explain that it is made of 50% polyester resin and 50% calcium carbonate which is derived from natural marble stone. Both ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the body of the article.

The applicable subheading for the #91100 reindeer is 6810.99.00, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Articles of cement, of concrete or of artificial stone...: Other articles: Other". The duty will be 2%. The sample is returned herewith.

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.
