In your letter dated October 17, 2007 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The four bands are attached around a metal support rod rising vertically approximately 20 inches from a cylindrical metal base. The top of the metal rod supports a lamp-holder, saddle and lamp harp with a poly finial. The lamp harp supports a flared fabric lamp shade measuring approximately 13 inches high by 16 inches wide and 10 inches deep, and is accented with eighteen glass diamond cut square shaped crystals.

The applicable subheading for the Table Lamp Crystal Silver Metal, Ashley item number L431104, will be 9405.20.8010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Lamps and lighting fittings: Electric table, desk, bedside or floor-standing lamps: Other: Household.” The general rate of duty will be 3.9 percent ad valorem.
