RE: The tariff classification of ceramic cups from China.

Dear Ms. Keegan:

In your letter dated May 25, 1999, on behalf of Russ Berrie and Company, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling. Sample is being returned as requested.

The exterior is colored to resemble an apple with decorative leaves to the left side of the handle. The bottom of the cup is designed with a lip for use with a saucer. It is stated to be valued at $12.40 per dozen.

The applicable subheading for the ceramic cup will be 6912.00.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other ceramic tablewareother than of porcelain or china: other: cups valued over $5.25 per dozen. The rate of duty will be 4.5 percent ad valorem.
