Yeah a few months ago they had a snafu where like 50% of their stuff was “unavailable” and then the next day they fixed it.

Eh, if it gets discontinued, it won’t effect your life (at all, really). China is not really used anymore, and nobody ever has an expectation unfulfilled “Why didn’t you break out the good china” is a question i’ve never seen uttered.

If it gets discontinued, you’ll use the money for something else, and life will be just as good :-). Maybe even better, since you won’t be stressed about whether your niece/nephew/kid is going to smash your discontinued china plate.

I’ve been looking online for you, and, you’re right. I couldn’t find Waterford Monique Lhullier Lily of the Valley china on the Waterford site either.  I would contact Waterford directly just to ask someone there to confirm that the pattern is still active and has not been discontinued.  However, replacements.com indicates that the pattern was introduced in 2012 and that the replacements site doesn’t have any pieces.  If all that is true, it’s likely that the pattern is indeed very new, and you should be fine.

I was going to say that if it has been discontinued, it’s a sign! Don’t register for fine china! However, from your update, this is obviously not the answer that you are looking for. I would just save myself the stress and contact Waterford directly… why sit there and worry about it when you can get a firm answer, and make a plan from there?

@gingerkitten:  My husband and I had this happen to us after we spent a very long time picking out our Lenox china.  But in our case it truly HAD been discontinued.  Fortunately we live near two Lenox factories that have stores attached.  We were able to get a complete service for 14 (and I mean seriously complete) for 75% off the regular price…so in the end it was a win-win for us.  I hope your pattern gets back online soon!!!

We have the same problem. Some pieces have been “currently out of stock online” for a very long time, but the place settings and a few other pieces are still there.
