RE: The tariff classification of a decorative ceramic cup with saucer from China.

Dear Ms. Powell:

In your letter dated August 19, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, item number 040358, is a decorative ceramic (dolomite) cup that flares upward and features floral as well as two-tone crosshatch motifs on its exterior. There is also a matching round-shaped ceramic plate, measuring about 6 7/8 inches in diameter, that incorporates at its midsection a square-shaped indentation to accommodate the base of the cup. It is stated that this cup will be used to contain a floral arrangement.

The applicable subheading for this decorative ceramic cup with saucer will be 6913.90.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other ornamental ceramic articles, other than of porcelain or china, other. The rate of duty will be 6 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 George Kalkines at 646-733-3028.
