Dear Ms. Schmidt:

In your letter dated May 3,2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample you submitted is a set of three round, aluminum containers measuring approximately 2 1/4 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches high. They are intended to hold small items, such as pills, jewelry, etc. The interior of each box is unlined. The exterior of each is decorated with glass beads, glitter, aluminum chain and tiny aluminum rings. Your letter indicates that aluminum provides both the greatest weight and value of the item.

The applicable subheading for the aluminum boxes will be 7615.19.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for table, kitchen or other household articles and parts thereof, of aluminumother, other. The rate of duty will be 3.1 percent ad valorem.
