RE: The tariff classification of three decorative agglomerated stone articles from China

Dear Ms. Richardson:

In your letter dated November 21, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Three representative samples were submitted and will be returned to you as requested.

Each item measures approximately nine inches in height and is designed to be displayed in a sitting position.

Each article consists of an agglomerated stone head, torso, hands and feet. You stated in your letter that the agglomerated portion of each article is composed of natural stone powder agglomerated with plastic resin. You further stated that the arms and legs are composed of paper pulp and fabric.

The applicable subheading for the three decorative agglomerated stone animal figurines will be 6810.99.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles ofartificial stone, whether or not reinforced: other articles: other. The rate of duty will be free.
