Dear Mr. Kane:

In your letter dated March 2, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The sample submitted will be returned as requested.

The sample submitted is a candleholder set consisting of a tulip shaped candleholder, measuring approximately 23 inches in length, and a candle. The flower portion of the candleholder is made of glass and the stem is made of metal. The article is an in-ground candleholder used to light a walkway or garden path. The essential character of the set is imparted by the candleholder.

The applicable subheading for the candleholder set 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.
