RE: The tariff classification of two decorative glass articles from China

Dear Ms. Benway:

In your letter dated July 31, 2000, on behalf of your client, Ocean State Jobbers, you requested a tariff classification ruling. A representative sample of the item was submitted with your ruling request.

The submitted samples, which are identified as “Snuff Bottles”, are two decorative hand-painted glass bottles depicting an oriental scene. One bottle is round (item #08485) and measures approximately two and one-half inches in height by two and one-half inches in width; the other bottle is oval (item #08486) and measures approximately three inches in height by one inch in width. Each bottle has a removable glass lid with a foam stopper.

You indicated in your letter that the unit value of each glass snuff bottle is $0.60.

The applicable subheading for the two decorative glass snuff bottles will be 7013.99.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for glassware of a kind used for table, kitchen, toilet, office, indoor decoration or similar purposes: other glassware: other: other: valued over $0.30 but not over $3.00 each. The rate of duty will be 30 percent ad valorem.

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 212-637-7074.
