RE: The tariff classification of glass coasters from China

Dear: Ms. Jewett:

In your letter dated April 18, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling regarding two articles: glass trivets and glass coasters. The glass trivet, which will be sent to our Customs laboratory for analysis, will be addressed under ruling #I81126. Glass coasters will be the subject of this ruling. A photograph depicting the glass coasters was submitted with your ruling request.

The subject article, which is identified as NQ Coasters, is a four-piece assortment of glass coasters. The item measures approximately four inches by four inches and is edged in metal. Each glass coaster has a decorative decal that features four different sayings.

You indicated in your letter that the unit value of each coaster is $0.95.

The applicable subheading for the four-piece assortment of glass coasters will be 7013.99.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for glassware of a kind used for table, kitchen, toilet, office, indoor decoration or similar purposes: other glassware: other: other: valued over $0.30 but not over $3.00 each. The rate of duty will be 30 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
