This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1920 edition. Excerpt: ...imitation pearl beads made of glass filled w th wax, permanently strung, fastened with a metal clasp, and have as a part thereof an imitation pearl pendant, pear shaped, which constitutes a substantial and attractive part of the necklace. This pendant is easily a sufficiently important part of the necklace to, in common est.mat ton, take the articles out of the category of strings of beads and place them within the popular conception of necklaces, the pendant being a usual and even characteristic part of many necklaces. These necklaces, while cheap in appearance and structure, in no material wise differ from many conc;dedly valuable pearl necklaces; and, if worn by one of known means, might readily be mistaken for such. The articles were classified by the collector of customs at the port of New York as "jewelry" under the first part of paragraph 356, tariff act of 1913, reading: 356. Jewelry, commonly or commercially so known, valued above 20 cents per dozen pieces, 60 per centum ad valorem; The importers protested and, on appeal to the Board of General Appraisers, were sustained in their claim that the articles were properly dutiable as "articles. composed wholly or in chief value of beads or spangles made of glass or paste. or other material," within the terms of paragraph 333 of said act, reading: 333. Beads and spangles of all kinds, including imitation pearl beads, not threaded or strung, or strung loosely on thread for facility in transportation only, 35 per centum ad valorem; curtains, and other articles not embroidered nor appliqued and not specially provided for in this section, composed wholly or in chief value of heads or spangles made of glass or paste, gelatin, metal, or other material, 50 per centum more
