Dear Ms. Seamands:

In your letter dated August 27, 2004, on behalf of Glassybaby LLC, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The candleholder measures approximately 3 ½ inches in height with an open-top diameter of 2 inches, an interior depth of 2 ¾ inches, and an interior-base diameter of 1 ¼ inches. The candle measures about 2 inches long by 1 ½ inches in diameter. It is stated that this candleholder set at the time of importation will be put up in a manner suitable for sale directly to users without repacking. It is noted that the essential character of the set is imparted by the candleholder.

The applicable subheading for this candleholder set will be 9405.50.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other non-electrical lamps and lighting fittings, other. The rate of duty will be 6 percent ad valorem.
