Dear Ms. Schmidt:

In your letter dated February 18, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The top portion is handmade of multicolored glass. The metal base costs $0.85, the glass top costs $0.88. The metal component weighs twice as much as the glass.

The applicable subheading for the bottle stoppers will be 8309.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for stoppers, caps and lidsof base metal, other. The rate of duty will be 2.6 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 Barbara Kaiser at 646-733-3024.
