RE: The tariff classification of napkin ring holders from China.

Dear Ms. Liu:

In your letter dated December 12, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted three samples of napkin holder rings. The first napkin ring is identified as item #S62B8010. It is made of plastic and covered with viscose thread. The essential character of this napkin ring is imparted by the plastic component.

The third napkin ring is identified as item #S74M8704. It is composed of a metal frame with glass beads on cotton mesh fabric. This napkin ring will be available with gold or silver color finish.

Although the samples are labeled “Made in India” your letter of inquiry indicates that they are made in China.
