It features a flower-like hinged lid with a body possessing a basket weave exterior in noting that the lid is secured via a snap closure with a gold colored iron band.

The applicable subheading for this decorative ceramic article, item number 972385, will be 6913.10.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other ornamental ceramic articles of porcelain. The rate of duty will be free.
