these seat collars are machined to nestle down onto the seat tube, with an inner lip so it stops on top of seat tube.

btw those are very pretty and blingy dropout designs aren't they? The 3 leaf clover.

one other straightforward possible is to just go with some good study p clamps for the lower attachment point--if the load is light this would work. This would allow the use of any regular rack.
remember that Thule rack, made for bikes with no eyelets, that uses adjustable clamps? It had a solid reputation, but pricey if I recall, and I'm not sure if still sold.
