Possibly a type of magnolia.

Hard so say. How tall are the ceilings in your house? My magnolia is over 40 feet tall so I keep it out in the yard. Rolling on the floor laughing

But seriously, the branch does not look like it has enough material to take root. Can you find the 'mother' tree and take a fresh cutting long enough to successfully root.

You might also try to make a new tree by air layering.
Here is an NGA article:

I think you can make bonsai with any tree provided you have enough light for them.

Even Bonzai need to grow out side most of the time.
