RE: The tariff classification of a Santa Claus Christmas tree ornament from China.

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated June 20, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling on a Christmas tree ornament, Rite Aid item number 972716.

The ornament in question, is known as a "Fabric Skiing Santa", and is described as an 8" ethnic Santa in a red suit with white trim and green gloves. Made of light weight material, he is carrying ski poles and is standing on skis. He is wearing a burlap backpack filled with berries, pine cones and gifts. A string loop is attached to the hat of the Santa for hanging in a Christmas tree.

The applicable subheading for the Christmas tree top ornament will be 9505.10.2500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles for Christmas festivities and parts and accessories thereof: Christmas ornaments: other: other. The rate of duty will be free.

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.
