A small triangle of sheet metal, used to hold glass in a window frame until the putty dries.
- Use a putty knife to press glazier's points into the sash every 4 to 6 inches to hold the glass.
- Flat metal glazier's points are 20th century technology so they cannot be original to a 19th century mirror.
- In addition to the glass you will also need glazier's points and glazing compound to hold the glass in place.
