The Ulysses H Pattern on this Birkin 35 is a callback to when the company made good use of this stylized geometric logo in the 1970’s. Previously only seen on vintage Kellys and HACs and other designs, the Ulysses pattern is rendered here for the first time in a Birkin 35 with Gold Courchevel trim and Gold hardware. This unique bag has been maintained in excellent condition, and will certainly pique the interest of Hermes collectors familiar with this long discontinued pattern.

The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used.
