RE: The tariff classification of a figurine of agglomerated stone from China

Dear Mr. De Castro:

In your letter dated November 30, 1998, on behalf of your client, Papel Giftware, you requested a tariff classification ruling regarding a figurine of an angel called "Heavenly Thoughts, item L53759." The angel is holding a scroll which reads "You brighten my day."

You stated that the figurine is made of crushed natural stone agglomerated with plastics resin.

The applicable subheading for the agglomerated stone figurine will be 6810.99.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles of...artificial stone...other articles: other. The rate of duty will be one percent ad valorem. Effective January 1, 1999, the rate of duty will be free.

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.
