How long does Hermes keep tableware patterns in before they're discontinued?

I have not yet started shopping at Hermes, as my state doesn't have a boutique, though one is (hopefully) opening up in a few months. I enjoy the bags of course and would love a Kelly one day, but I think H scarves and tableware are beautiful. I really like the current passifolia line and would love to own some pieces from it. I don't mind having patience and waiting, but not if there's a chance of it being discontinued soon! Do you think it's worth chancing the wait of the store opening to try to shop with an SA, or just buy online when I can?

That's a very good question.
Passifolia is such a new design that I, too, hope that it will be in production for the forseeable future.
Nonetheless, if you want some pieces that are available on line, as with all things Hermes - buy when you can.

Since Passifolia was only introduced in 2020, I’d imagine it to be around for a little while. It’s a very popular pattern and production is behind.
In addition to Hermès.com, there are other authorized dealers that sell some Hermès patterns and you may be able to pick up some discontinued pieces there as well should the need arrive.

Thank you both for your replies! It's good to know that I might be able to pick up pieces in the event the pattern is discontinued. And I definitely understand "but while you can" when it comes to these brands!

The discontinuation of an H tableware pattern depends on the popularity. For a popular design they may keep it for 20 years but if the design is not selling they discontinue it 3-4 years after launch. The Passifolia seems to be very hot worldwide and it's just launched in 2020, it is a high chance of being a long running design.
