RE: The tariff classification of a glass vase/candleholder from China

Dear Ms. Powell:

In your letter dated May 7, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item in question, article 012144, is a pedestal shaped glass vase/candleholder that measures 10.5 inches high and 4 inches in diameter. Within the glass vase/candleholder, affixed to the base, is a tube measuring approximately 2 inches high and 1 inch in diameter that is used to hold a candle. Although principally used as a candleholder, the item can also be used as a vase.

The applicable subheading for the glass vase/candleholder, article 012144, 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.

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 George Kalkines at 212-637-7073.
