The submitted sample, style A4085, "Round Vanity Case w/Handle", is a travel style vanity case. It measures approximately 4 x 4 x 25 inches, with one large zipper secured compartment. The front panel is composed of a nylon mesh fabric embroidered with a flower. The sides, back handle and trim are of plastic.

The applicable subheading for the travel vanity case will be 4202.12.2050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases, vanity cases and similar containers, with outer surface of plastic; other. The rate of duty will be 20% ad valorem.
