Dear Mr. Epstein:

In your letter dated April 16, 1999, on behalf of your client Avon products, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The stocking features a full-figured head of a reindeer with two front paws. The reindeer is wearing a traditional Santa Claus hat and a green shirt.

This product also incorporates a battery powered musical chip that plays the “Jingle Bell” melody. The Christmas stocking has a loop attached for hanging from a wall or fireplace.

The sample is returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the Reindeer Christmas stocking 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.
