RE: The tariff classification of a glass pitcher with drinking glasses from Italy

Dear Ms. Young:

In your letter dated May 26, 1998, on behalf of your client, Meijer Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling. A representative sample of the item was submitted and will be returned as requested.

The subject article (item #761328) is a five-piece set which includes one 50 3/4 ounce frosted glass pitcher and four 11 ounce frosted drinking glasses. You indicate in your letter that the unit value for each glass is $0.79 and the unit value for the glass pitcher is $2.35.

The essential character of the set is imparted by the glass pitcher. It is the central piece and the focus of the set when the merchandise is being used to serve liquid refreshments.

The applicable subheading for the glass pitcher with glasses will be 7013.39.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for glassware of a kind used for table (other than drinking glasses) or kitchen purposes other than that of glass ceramics: other: other: valued not over $3 each. The rate of duty will be 27 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 Jacob Bunin at 212-466-5796.
