It features a top opening for the insertion of a candle and possesses an exterior depicting reindeers, Christmas gifts and tree in bas-relief.

The applicable subheading for this porcelain candleholder 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 6.3 percent ad valorem.
