RE: The tariff classification of candleholders from China.

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated April 18, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The samples submitted consist of candleholders which are known as the "Halloween Polyresin Votive Cups" (model number 972274). They consist of Halloween-like figures, measuring about 4 inches high, which depict a witch stirring a kettle, a comical ghost standing near a tree stump and a skeleton embracing a jack-o'-lantern. It is noted that the kettle, tree stump and jack-'o-lantern possess top cutouts that are designed for the insertion of a tealite candle (not imported with these items).

The applicable subheading for these Halloween-like candleholders, model number 972274, 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.
