Victorian black gutta percha cameo plaque which appears to have been part of a larger piece. Gutta percha, a material used in the Victorian era for mourning items, is usually found in the form of jewelry or in a union case for a daguerreotype photo. I have never seen just a loose piece like this and thought it would be lovely as part of an assemblage or shrine

The piece is just a hair under 3 inches by 4 inches and appears to have been removed from something. It also appears that someone appeared to glue it back on to no avail. The design appears to be a woman with a shield and a sword, perhaps Joan of Arc?
