Dear Ms. Liu:

In your letter dated March 29, 2001 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The ruling was requested on your item # C74K1076, referred to as a set of 2 fern Xmas golden baskets. A sample set of two nesting round baskets was submitted. The smaller basket measures approximately 3-1/2” high and 7-1/2” in diameter; the larger basket measures 4” high and 9” in diameter. The baskets are made of interwoven fern and are painted gold. A textile ribbon decorates the center of the sides of the basket. The bottom of the basket has a fabric lining with a snowman print. The print consists of a snowman, birds, a tree and the words “We Can Build a Snowman.” The sets will be sold in six shapes: square, hexagonal, rectangular, round, oval and heart-shaped.

The applicable subheading for the fern baskets, item # C74K1076, will be 4602.10.1800, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for articles made from plaiting materials; of vegetable materials; other baskets and bags, whether or not lined; other; other.
