Design: A very nice flowing underlined script for the label name logo, very much in the 1920s style (compare with Selecta).

History: Label scan above courtesy of collector Stuart Walker of the U.S.A. Alternate colour scan (left) courtesy of collector Dave Dixon of Canada, who writes: "Century was another label from Sam Meltzer, which bootlegged Paramount jazz records as well as apparently legitimate issues by arrangement with producers like Bob Thiele [as appearing on the label]." Alternate colour scan (below right) courtesy of collector Mike Thompson of Canada.
