Reichert Item To Good Home

This will be a different kind of posting....about four years ago I rescued an item from an antique shop in Camden, South Carolina. I could not bear to see the item in the shop because it was so unique, and needed to be somewhere it could be appreciated. The problem is....I have absolutely no connection with the Reichert name!!!! So, I'm looking for a good home for this item. It hangs on the wall and measures about 11-1/2" tall, 4-1/2" wide and 1" thick. Imprinted into the item in lines of three each at the top are 9 circular designs. I can identify a star, rose, fish, thistle,flower. At the bottom are 9 retangular imprints--a house with tree, woman carrying water, man hiking, rabbit, deer, castle or fort, dog, horse, and bird). Across the top reads: "18 C Reichert 88". So the item is 119 years old! The most amazing thing is that it is made of wax. I'm looking for a possible connection, or just someone that would make me feel right about passing along this Reichert family treasure. If I do not find a home, I will continue to enjoy the beauty of this rescued treasure.
