To introduce myself
My name is Ralph Paschen, born 1960 near Düsseldorf/Nordrhein-Westfalen. I became self-employed in the early age of 24 years. I am married with two daughters and we all live with our beloved dog Isa in Karlsruhe (South of Germany). I’m raised in the German tradition of hunting.
To recharge my batteries there’s nothing better to me than enjoying field sports, to escape from our industrial world for a timeslot. In 2005 I became the German and Austrian ambassador for Holt’s auctioneers, the leading auction house in Europe for modern and antique guns and rifles and related items.
In 2007 I was honoured and became a liverymen of the London gunmakers as well as I became a Freeman of the City of London.
It is an outstanding honour for a foreigner to become a part of the English gunmaking world.
My love and passion for the field sports took me on many trips around the globe, stalking and shooting in the UK is still one of my favourites, also I have a very weak spot for Africa. Through this lifestyle I made many worldwide connections which place me in a position to realise gun dreams on behalf of my clients. This kind of research with provenance is part of my daily work.
Should you decide to sell individual items of your collection or your collection in total, I am able to offer you “all inclusive service” and the best possible market place to achieve the best possible price.
