The figurine portion depicts two birds on a branch. You state that the polyresin consists of 70 percent resin and 30 percent calcium carbonate, and that the calcium carbonate is derived from a synthetic chemical. The article measures approximately 4 ¾ inches at its greatest height and 5 inches at its greatest width.

The applicable subheading for the lovebirds figurine will be 3926.40.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other articles of plasticsstatuettes and other ornamental articles. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.
