: What is a "Rag and Bone" referring to? What/Where/When is it from? My inability to qualify a decent search has resulted in many references to things named Rag and Bone, but with no hint at what it is...

: Many thanks in advance.

The earliest use I found in a quick search is in a poem by Rudyard Kipling, "The Vampire."
