Dear Ms. Powell:

In your letter dated April 13, 2005 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The ruling was requested on a vine cornucopia, article catalog # 0520. A sample of the product was submitted. The sample consists of a horn shaped container approximately 18” long, 9” high and 8” in diameter at its opening. It is made of interwoven whole stems of passion vine (Passiflora spp.). It is decorated at the top of the opening with small plastic fruits and berries and with textile leaves. The cornucopia will be sold to florists for use in their floral arrangements.

The applicable subheading for the vine cornucopia, article catalog # 0520, will be 4602.10.1700, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for basketwork, wickerwork and other articles made from plaiting materials: of vegetable materials; other baskets and bags, whether or not lined, other, wickerwork. The rate of duty will be free.

Importation of this product may be subject to import regulations administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A.). Information regarding applicable regulations administered by the U.S.D.A. may be addressed to that agency at the following location:
