I don’t think the upper stretcher is supposed to have the same pattern as the lower one.
I believe a plain round stretcher would be fine. Do you have the broken member?
If so, and if it does have the same pattern as the lower one, I would make two pieces to replace the broken tenons and splice them into the old piece where the first ring is turned. use a solid tenon and mortise with good glue or even epoxy.
