The mug is decorated on two sides with the popular cartoon figure, "Tweety". The applicable subheading for the plastic Tweety commuter mug set will be 3924.10.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: tableware, kitchenware, other household articles...of plastics. The duty rate will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.
