Tips needed for building up a two man top

I am nearing the stage of building the two man top for a 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau. My question is; What is the most original, for the bigger cars, a top rest with leather straps (as in Model T Fords) or a more sophisticated top saddle that supports and secures each of the four bows (with a clamp device)? Next question; Who would be a good source for the wooden bows? I would like to see a few good close-up pictures of well done assemblies, including the top rest/saddles, if someone is willing to take the time to post or email.
