You stated in your letter that each cone-shaped glass article rests inside each square glass article that is filled with ice. Once the cone-shaped glass article is chilled, it is then filled with a mixed drink. The pick is for stirring or for skewering an olive, cherry, etc. The six square glass vessels are designed to fit into the wooden tray.
