Dear Ms. Davenport:

In your letter dated March 14, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted, Style #GF-2X679, 43 Inch Glass Pumpkin Metal Stand, consists of three pumpkin shaped orange glass 3-D candleholders that measure approximately 6” in height and 5” in diameter and have metal jack-o-lantern faces. The candleholders will be packaged with a metal stand that measures approximately 43” in height and 1/8” in diameter and can be screwed into a bolt on the bottom of each candleholder. The other end of the metal stand has two prongs for embedding into the ground. A candle (not included) can be placed inside the holder to illuminate the jack-o-lantern’s face. The jack-o-lantern is an accepted festive symbol of Halloween and this item is intended as a decorative article for the Halloween holiday. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for Style #GF-2X679, 43 Inch Glass Pumpkin Metal Stand, will be 9505.90.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for festive, carnival or other entertainment articles, including magic tricks and practical joke articles; parts and accessories thereof: other: other.
