It possesses, at its top, a figurine of a red cardinal that is perched on a partially snow-covered branch of holly sprigs and berries. The body of the bell is further decorated by bas-relief depictions of leaves. It is noted that the interior of the bell features a single chime attached via a gold-colored interwoven string.

The applicable subheading for the Holiday Cardinal Bell will be 6913.10.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other ornamental ceramic articles of porcelain, other. The rate of duty will be free.
