Dear Ms. Habrial:

In your letter dated March 4, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling. A representative sample of the item you wish to import was submitted with your ruling request. The sample is being returned to you as requested.

The subject article, designated in your letter as “Dream Pig Set” – item number 78-1460, is a kit consisting of one large ceramic (non-porcelain) piggy bank, 1 liner brush, 1 paint tray, 1 sheet of black felt circles, 1 sheet of circle and alphabet stencils, 4 triangular sponges and 5 pots of paint, all packed together for retail sale. The measurements are approximately 11 inches in height by 10 inches in width.

The purpose of the kit is to decorate the exterior surface of the ceramic piggy bank with paint.

The essential character of the kit is imparted by the ceramic piggy bank.

The applicable subheading for the decorative ceramic piggy bank kit will be 6913.90.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for statuettes and other ornamental ceramic articles: other: other: other. The rate of duty will be 6 percent ad valorem.
