RE: Classification of a pillar shaped candle set with glass holder and snuffer from China

Dear Ms. Peterson:

In your letter dated August 3, 2004 you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your sample is being returned.

The three items are retail packed in a clear plastic box tied with white ribbon. The candle is said to consist of approx. 60% palm oil and 40% paraffin wax. The candle imparts the essential character of the set.
