1940s Averill Raggedy Ann doll by J. Gruelle

1940s Averill Raggedy Ann doll, 18"

Averill Manufacturing Company a New York, USA doll manufacturer has a long and somewhat confusing history, mostly due to the various names the company operated under such as: Averill Mfg. Corp., Paul Averill, Inc., Brophy Doll Company (in Canada), Georgene Averill, Georgene Novelties, Inc. and Madame Hendren.

It was begun by husband and wife team James "Paul" Averill and wife Georgene Hopf Averill, they also employed Georgene's brother Rudolph A. Hopf and daughter Maxine Averill.  Georgene or Madame Georgene the doll designer, sometimes used the trade name Madame Hendren which is also in some of the doll markings, also Life-Like doll or Lyf-Lyk and Wonder dolls.

Averill collaborated with Borgfeldt, Horsman and several other doll artists, they are probably best known for cloth Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls designed by Johnny Gruelle and the Bonnie Babe doll.
