Simple Simon met a pieman going to the fair; Said Simple Simon to the pieman "Let me taste your ware" Said the pieman to Simple Simon "Show me first your penny" Said Simple Simon to the pieman "Sir, I have not any!"
Simple Simon went a-fishing for to catch a whale; All the water he had got was in his mother's pail. Simple Simon went to look if plums grew on a thistle; He pricked his fingers very much which made poor Simon whistle. He went for water in a sieve but soon it all fell through; And now poor Simple Simon bids you all "Adieu"
Simple Simon is listed on page 300 of A Century of Royal Doulton Character & Toby Jugs, and in The Royal Doulton Jugs Charlton Standard Catalogue on page 350. Listed book value of $600
A delightful jug, he is highly sought after by Doulton collectors and becoming rare.
