On his left arm, he holds a wreath made of artificial pine branches. The wreath is decorated with pinecones, holly leaves, berries and a gold colored bow. This centerpiece measures 14-1/2 inches by 10 inches by 10 inches.

The sample is returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the snowman centerpiece will be 9505.10.2500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles for Christmas festivities and parts and accessories thereof: Christmas ornaments: other, other. The rate of duty will be free.
