In your letter dated July 31, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Sample is being returned as requested.

The sample submitted is a non-electrical metal (non-brass) candle lamp, item number 702867, that measures approximately 12 1/8 inches in height with a disk-shaped base measuring nearly 4 inches in diameter. It consists of a metal rod, emanating from the base, that possesses two metal rings affixed about its top and bottom. There is a small cylindrical-shaped metal receptacle, designed to contain a taper candle (not included), that is inserted through the bottom ring’s midsection and attached to the zigzag portion of the metal rod. Further, there is a cylindrical-shaped frosted glass shade, with open ends and star-shaped motif, that is designed to be inserted through the rings and over the receptacle. It can be carried via a metal ring that is affixed to the top portion of the rod.

The applicable subheading for this candleholder will be 9405.50.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other non-electrical lamps and lighting fittings, other. The rate of duty will be 6 percent ad valorem.
