I have a lovely old 5x7 2D; the purchase passed muster with my wife on aesthetic grounds, basically. (-"I, um, bought a camera..." -"You WHAT???" -"It's wood and brass!" -"Ooooo...") Without too much trouble we found a suitable Crown tripod to go with it (I forget which number, but it's beefy enough for the camera).
Unfortunately, what sits in between the camera and tripod at the moment is a modern Manfrotto head, and it just looks Wrong.
I gather that Graflex/F&S did make tripod heads, but I don't remember ever seeing one. Have they all worn out or been discarded by people who didn't know what they were? Is it possible to find a reasonably historically accurate *and* functionally competent head to go with this tripod/camera combination?
