RE: The tariff classification of gold-plated metal hanging ornaments from
Dear Ms. Paintner:
In your letter dated July 23, 1990 on behalf of Intaglio Designs LTD.,
you requested a tariff classification ruling.
The sample you submitted is a gold-plated metal hanging ornament with a
glass stone attached. These decorative metal ornaments will be imported both
with or without the stone attached. This type of hanging ornament is used to
decorate trees in homes and offices.
The applicable subheading for the gold-plated metal hanging ornament
will be 8306.21.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS),
which provides for other ornaments of base metal. The rate of duty will be
6.5 percent ad valorem.
This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the
Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents
filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been
filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the
Customs officer handling the transaction.
