There are also six translucent textured-glass panels; a metal tealight receptacle, situated at its lower interior, which can be removed or secured by turning its exterior bottom; and a top metal hook, which is used for carrying and hanging.

The applicable subheading for this non-electrical lantern will be 9405.50.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Lamps and lighting fittingsnot elsewhere specified or includedOther non-electrical lamps and lighting fittings, Other.
