RE: The tariff classification of decorative frames from China.

Dear Ms. Jewett:

In your letter dated April 29, 2002, you requested a ruling on tariff classification.

The samples you provided are two frames made to look like flowers in a pot. The NQ Flower Pics consists of a polyester resin pot with potpourri moss and a metal “plant” that has picture frames instead of flowers. The NQ Flower Thoughts is similar, except that the square frame holds a quotation from a famous author. In the opinion of this office, the essential character of these items is the frame.

The applicable subheading for this product will be 8306.30.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for photograph, picture or similar frames, of base metal. The general rate of duty will be 2.7 percent ad valorem.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist James Smyth at 646-733-3018.
