The wax is said to consist of 60% palm wax, 37% paraffin wax and 3% fragrance. The candle poured in a jar imparts the essential character of the set.

The applicable subheading for the wax candle poured in a glass jar with a glass lampshade will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for candles, tapers and the like. The duty is free.

Candles from China may be subject to anti-dumping duties administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Import Administration. You may contact them at 14th St. and Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20230, phone (202) 482-0162.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
