RE: Tariff classification of a 3-dimensional bottle-shaped wax candle from China.

Dear Ms. Latner:

In your letter dated July 11, 2006, on behalf of Weddingstar Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your “Wine Candle” consists of a hand painted miniature 3-dimensional wine bottle-shaped green candle with printed paper “wine” label (approx. 1”D x 4”H). The candle is retail packed in a miniature open-top wooden box lined with paper straw and shrink-wrapped in clear plastic tied with a rattan bow (approx. 4.5”L x 1.25”W x 1”H). The candle is intended as a favor for an occasion such as a wedding or bridal shower. Your sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the 3-dimensional retail packed bottle-shaped wax candle will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for candles, tapers and the like. The rate of duty will be free.
