It is noted that each of the above articles is decorated with a white and gold textile trimming and textile gold-colored rosebud encompassed by beads, bows and netting-like material.

The applicable subheading for the items contained in the "Porcelain Gift Set" (item number 972515) 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.
