The overall dementions of the lantern are 7½ inches in diameter and 6½ inches high. One quarter section of the scrolls pivots open to provide access to a fitted metal receptacle measuring approximately 1½ inches in diameter and ½ inch deep, the standard size of a tealight candle. This tealight receptacle is welded to the bottom center of the lantern.

The applicable subheading for the Harvest Metal Candle Holder, Item Number A076GA02192 will be 9405.50.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Lamps and lighting fittingsNon-electrical lamps and lighting fittings: Other: Other.” The general rate of duty will be 6 percent ad valorem.
