RE: The tariff classification of a decorative ceramic figure from China.

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated July 8, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted is a decorative ceramic figure, referred to as the "Large Terracotta Lying Angel" (item number 972589), which depicts an angel, measuring approximately 13 1/2 inches by 7 inches by 8 inches, in a lying position with the hands holding the head in an upright posture. It is stated that this item is intended to be used as an ornamental accessory for either inside or outside the home.

The applicable subheading for this decorative ceramic angel-like figure, item number 972589, will be 6913.90.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other ornamental ceramic articles. The rate of duty will be 6.4 percent ad valorem.

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 George Kalkines at 212-466-5794.
