Dear Ms. Ramsey:

In your letter dated June 11, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The submitted sample will be returned to you.

The merchandise under consideration is the Purple Rose Candle Holder, item number 62210. The Purple Rose Candle Holder is a candlestick that measures approximately 8.5 inches high by 4.5 inches wide at its widest points. This candlestick is constructed of metal wire and shaped to resemble a flower stem, decorated at various points by small plastic flowers, leaves, and spheres, mounted on a flat steel base which measures approximately 3.5 inches in diameter. At its apex, the steel stem widens to form a cylinder surrounded by six sepal-style leaves, from each of which dangles a crystal-shaped plastic decoration. Seated in the cylinder is a stylized glass rose blossom, containing a recessed receptacle sized for a tea light candle.

The applicable subheading for the Purple Rose Candle Holder, item number 62210, will be 9405.50.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Lamps and lighting fittings: Non-electrical lamps and lighting fittings: Other: Other.
