Dear Ms. Liu:

In your letter dated August 3, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling on a table clock from China. A sample of the clock was submitted with the ruling request.

The face of the clock features the traditional Arabic numbers 1 through 12 around the periphery corresponding to the hours of the day. The clock has a round white dial with black hour and minute hands, and a red second hand. The dial features a round plastic gold tone frame.

Your sample is being returned as requested.
