RE: The tariff classification of a decorative agglomerated stone article from China

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated July 28, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling. A representative sample was submitted with your ruling request. The sample is being returned to you as requested.

The subject article, designated in your letter as “Wood Look Snowman Table Piece” - item number 945601, is a decorative, tabletop agglomerated stone article depicting two three-dimensional snowman figurines. A larger snowman is wearing a black top hat with red ribbon, a blue scarf, and brown mittens and holding an evergreen tree. A much smaller snowman is joined to the side of the larger snowman figurine. The smaller snowman is wearing a red scarf and blue mittens. The item has the appearance of carved wood and measures approximately 18 inches in height.

You indicated in your letter that the item is composed of crushed ground stone agglomerated with plastics material.

The applicable subheading for the decorative agglomerated stone article will be 6810.99.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for articles ofartificial stone, whether or not reinforced: other articles: other. The rate of duty will be free.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
