It measures 12 inches in diameter, and is available in gold, silver, red, and red and green. The reindeer is made of base metal wire painted gold and ornamented with gold glitter. The reindeer is suitable for table decoration, and is available in two sizes.

The applicable subheading for the bell wreath will be 8306.10.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for bells, gongs and the like, and parts thereof. The rate of duty will be 5.8 percent ad valorem.
