It has a wire frame with inserted amber colored glass pieces and an internal receptacle for the placement of a tea light candle. It is to be placed on a flat surface for the purpose of candlelight illumination.

The applicable subheading for the pumpkin candle holder will be 9405.50.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Non-electrical lamps and lighting fittings: Other: Other. The rate of duty will be 6 percent ad valorem.
