1925 Century Character Baby doll; Sweetums or Clap Hands a Bye-Lo type Baby doll, 12"

 

The Century Doll Company of New York was founded in 1909 by Max Scheuer and made bisque and composition dolls.  Max Scheuer retired in 1926 and his sons continued the business until 1928 when they merged with the Domec Toy Company.  The companies then became known as the Doll Corporation of America and continued to use Domec as a trade name and doll mark.

 

Century is probably best known for their Bye-Lo type Baby dolls with bisque heads by Kestner.
