Mystery Wheels - can you help with identification?

Can you help identify this spinning wheel? It was purchased in 1980 from The Village Craft Shop in Forest Row, Sussex, England, and believed to be made in rosewood: it is a naturally dark coloured hardwood.

Each piece of the wheel is stamped with the maker's mark, a capital "A".

Another wheel of this design has a label saying Surrey hardwoods: Sussex. London plane', suggesting that the wheel maker worked locally and used more than one kind of wood.
