You submitted two samples.

The second sample consists of a green-tinted ordinary glass candlestick holder (candle not included) measuring 2-3/4 inches in height by 2-1/4 inches in diameter at the mouth.

The applicable subheading for the wax-filled votive candle will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for candles, tapers and the like. The rate of duty is free.

The applicable subheading for the glass candlestick holder will be 9405.50.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other non-electrical lamps and lighting fittings. The rate of duty is 6 percent ad valorem.
