HB: Handlebars Handlebar Rubbers

I'm currently recommissioning a '52 Rapide, am new to the forum, and would like to fit a pair of correct, period handlebar rubbers to the bike. I've got a new set from the Spares Co., (PR11 / 12A), but just wondered if any member has a period (ideally close-up) photo which shows the correct design of grip fitted by the factory? The new grips look great, but I imagined that the factory would have fitted a simpler style of grip, similar/same as those supplied at the time by Amal. Any comments gratefully received!

Reasonably clear photo. on page 62 "Vincent Vee Twins" Roy Harper. They look like "AMAL" grips to me. Amal also supplied twistgrip, and levers (except the Valve lifter).

Thank you for the reply. I did wonder if Amal had supplied the original handlebar grips. Any other suitable photos from members most welcome!
