RE: The tariff classification of a glass article from China

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated October 15, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Two representative samples were submitted and will be returned to you as requested.

The subject article, which you refer to as Item #934778 - “Rain Gauge - Frog & Tortoise”, consists of a 6-inch calibrated glass tube and a three-dimensional agglomerated stone animal figurine holder. You indicated in your letter that the figurine holder would be imported in two styles - frog and tortoise. Both styles measure approximately 6.5 inches x 5 inches x 3.5 inches. The glass tube, which is placed into the figurine holder, is designed to be used as a measuring device to catch and monitor rain fall.

The applicable subheading for the glass rain gauge will be 7020.00.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of glass: other. The rate of duty will be 5 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 Jacob Bunin at 646-733-3027.
