The designer of the Mahogany Miracle and Mahogany Princess series is Ed van Rosemalen of the Netherlands. His family owns Parastone a renown European firm that is now also a manufacturer of disireable collectibles lines.
Mr. Rosemalen’s biography indicates that "he opened a new branch of his family's business, Parastone[est 18//] which was once known primarily for restoring paintings and church sculptures. Now, thanks to Ed's infusion of energy and talent, Parastone produces original artwork. Ed's own work, which is translated and produced by Parastone, has won him worldwide acclaim."
Enesco Corporation was the United States distributor of Mahogany Miracle items, since that line is now no longer in production.
