RE: The tariff classification of textile angel decorations from China.

Dear Ms. Curbelo:

In your letter received in this office on August 3, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted two samples of 18 inch angel wall decorations. They are identified as item #W-74-K-3813. The body portion of the angels is made of woven textile fabric. It is stuffed with cotton. The arms and legs are made of twisted yarns. The facial features are painted on and they have blond or brown hair. The wings and halo are made of wire and the loop shaped halo also functions as the hook for hanging the angel decoration on a wall. The angels are dressed in garments made of woven printed cotton fabric. A star made of cardboard, with the words "Merry Christmas" is attached to the front of each angel. Your letter of inquiry states that these angels are available in three assorted styles.

The applicable subheading for the 18 inch angel wall decorations will be 9505.10.2500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for...articles for Christmas festivities and parts and accessories thereof, Christmas ornaments: other, other. The rate of duty will be free.

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 Alice Masterson at 212-466-5892.
