RE: The tariff classification of a ceramic candleholder from China.

Dear Mr. Liberati:

In your letter dated March 13, 1997, on behalf of Liss Brothers, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted is a cylindrical-shape terracotta candleholder, known as the "Pillar Holder" (item number 18106), which measures approximately 3 inches high and possesses a ribbed exterior that is embellished, along one side, via holly leaves with berries. It also features a top opening, measuring about 2 1/2 inches in diameter, which is designed for the insertion of a candle.

The applicable subheading for the ceramic candleholder, item number 18106, will be 9405.50.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other non-electrical lamps and lighting fittings. The rate of duty will be 6.6 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

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.
