RE: The tariff classification of a lighted mirror from China

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated June 9, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling. A representative sample was submitted with your ruling and will be returned to you as requested.

The submitted sample, designated in your letter as “Ladybug Beauty Magic Light up Mirror” – item number 941046, is a decorative light up glass mirror framed in a three-dimensional plastic lady bug figurine. Three lipsticks (orange, pink and purple) are inserted into the three compartments on the base of the ladybug. The ladybug figurine measures approximately eight inches in height. The body of the ladybug opens up to a round glass mirror. The reflecting surface area of the mirror measures approximately 3 ½ inches in diameter. The item is battery operated.

The essential character of this article is imparted by the glass mirror.

The applicable subheading for the framed glass mirror with three lipsticks will be 7009.92.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for glass mirrors, whether or not framed: framed: not over 929 cm² in reflecting area. The rate of duty will be 7.8 percent ad valorem.
