RE: Tariff classification of three poured wax candles with wood base from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Nadeau:

     In your letter dated January 10, 2008 you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your samples were examined and diposed of.

Reference No. 43673 Glass Candle Set consists of three wax candles poured in clear glass holders (1-3/4”D x 1-7/8”H) and a black rectangular compressed-wood base with oval cutouts (2-7/8”L x 2-1/2”W x 5/8”H). The empty glass holders and wood base are purchased from China. The wax is poured in Hong Kong and the set is put up for retail sale in Hong Kong. The candle wax consists of 100% paraffin wax. The glass holders with poured wax candles are individually shrink-wrapped, bubble-bagged and packaged together with the wood base in a plain white cardboard box for retail sale. The wax candles poured in glass holders impart the essential character of the set.
