RE: The tariff classification of a crystal Nativity centerpiece from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Bartee:

In your letter dated August 22, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample of the crystal Nativity centerpiece, stock no. 541005, is a Nativity scene consisting of dual brass candlestick holders decorated with a Christmas floral motif. The candlestick holder contains a 4 1/2" diameter platform which is designed to support glass figures of the Virgin Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus lying in a simulated cradle.

The applicable subheading for the crystal Nativity centerpiece will be 9505.10.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Nativity scenes and figures thereof. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent.

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.
