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

Dear Ms. Latner:

In your letter dated June 17, 2003, on behalf of your client, Weddingstar Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling. A representative sample was submitted and was sent to our Customs laboratory for analysis.

The submitted sample is an agglomerated stone trinket box with a removable lid that is designed to replicate a wedding cake. The cake base is painted and decorated with flowers in high relief. It measures approximately 4 inches in diameter, 1 ¼ inches in height and has a 2 ½ inch opening. There are four ¼ inch supports attached to the underside of the base. The lid measures approximately 3 inches in diameter and is decorated with flowers in low relief.

You indicated in your letter that the trinket box with lid is composed of natural stone powder agglomerated with plastics material. Our laboratory analysis of the submitted sample did not conflict with the stated composition.

In your letter, you have submitted photographs depicting five styles of the above-referenced article, each style decorated with a uniquely designed lid. The specified styles are as follows: Product #370 - “Lavender Dried-Look Hydrangea with Butterfly Caketop/Keepsake”, Product #1674 - “White Silk Hydrangea with Chiffon Ribbon Caketop/Keepsake”, Product #1675 - Diamond Rose with Satin Ribbon Caketop/Keepsake”, Product #1677 - “Country Elegance Caketop/Keepsake” and Product # 1676 - “Diamond Rose with Caketop/Keepsake”.

The applicable subheading for the five agglomerated stone trinket boxes designated as Product numbers 370, 1674, 1675, 1677 and 1676 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.

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.
