RE: The tariff classification of wax-filled candleholders from China.

Dear Ms. Hubbard:

In your letter dated December 13, 2001 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The three samples submitted consist of the following wax-filled candleholders:

Style #-0003, is a terra cotta flower pot candleholder measuring approximately 2 5/8 inches high and 3 1/4 inches in diameter. Style #- 744-2956, is a brass and glass candleholder with brass lid measuring approximately 5 5/8 inches high to the top of its finial and 3 1/2 inches in diameter at the brass base.

The applicable subheading for wax-filled candleholders Styles #-0002 and #-0003 will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for candles, tapers and the like. The rate of duty will be free.
