RE: The tariff classification of a decorative glass article from China

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

The subject article, which is identified as “Newton Gravity Glass – 9 inch”- item #929626, is a sand-filled hourglass suspended within a clear liquid-filled glass cylinder. The item measures approximately 9-inches in height.

You indicated in your letter that the unit value of this item is $4.12.

The applicable subheading for the glass “hourglass” will be 7013.99.8000, 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: other: valued over $3.00 but not over $5.00 each. The rate of duty will be 12 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 Jacob Bunin at 646-733-3027.
