Reglazing 1902 Wood Sash

I have stripped 111 yrs of paint, patched sanded, primed, etc. One sash is in the shop for new glass and they asked if I wanted it silconed in vs putty. Any preferences out there??

IMO glazing looks better although silicone might last longer.

With all your restoration work, I would use putty to keep it authentic.

Thanks All

I was able to save the original glass on the bottom sash and have re-installed with points and putty. It really does look sharp, although a real PITA. That's the beauty of retirement, I can futz around for 20-30 hrs on each pair of sashes.
