The lower part is a basin, which will be filled with water and pumped to the upper part, via a submersible fountain pump set inside the basin during operation. You state that the fountain is made of polyresin that consists of 40% or more stone powder.

The applicable subheading for the sample will be 9505.10.2500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for Festive...Articles for Christmas festivities and parts and accessories thereof: Christmas ornaments: Other: Other. The rate of duty will be Free.
