Dear Ms. Smith:

In your letter dated June 24, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The wreath is made of 30 percent twig, 29 percent polyester leaves, 15 percent wire, 12 percent styrofoam berries, 10 percent paper and 4 percent paint. The wire branches have been wrapped with paper and the and the styrofoam berries have been glued to the ends of the wire branches. It is painted with three different illuminating colors, green, gold, and gold/red. In our opinion the polyester leaves impart the essential character to this item.

Samples are being returned as requested.
