Identification of coat-of-arms in wax seal, possibly Hungarian

Identification of coat-of-arms in wax seal, possibly Hungarian

Can anyone assist in indentifying the coat-of-arms imprinted in this wax seal? The shield is quartered with a five-pointed star within an oak & laurel wreath (upper left & lower right) and a caduceus over a six-spoked wheel (upper right & lower left). The crest is a helmet wit rampant lion holding a cornucopia. The zseal is from a painting once in a Hungarian private collection. Any help with this would be greatly appreaciated.

Sorry,but I've just trawled through all 5800-odd pages of Siebmacher's Hungarian arms and didn't find either of the arms shown.

Many thanks...it would seem then that I need to look elsewhere in Europe. I didn't expect this would be easy.
