RE: The tariff classification of a shadow box from China.

Dear Ms. Richardson:

In your letter dated May 16, 2003, on behalf of Bed Bath and Beyond, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a wooden framed shadow box measuring approximately 7 ¾” x 7 ¼” x 2 ½” containing miniature sized kitchen gadgets made of plastic. A metal hook is attached to the back of the box for hanging. The item is designed as a wall hanging.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the shadow box will be 9701.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Paintings, drawings and pastels, executed entirely by hand, other than drawings of heading 4906 and other than hand-painted or hand-decorated manufactured articles; collages and similar decorative plaques; all the foregoing framed or not framed: Other.” The rate of duty will be free.

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 Lawrence Mushinske at 646-733-3036.
