Literature: A frequently asked question, "How were they used??. A useful site for the ultimate answer is from their website "Two part creamware core moulds were made by Wedgwood and other Staffordshire potteries in the late eighteenth century. A clear jelly was moulded around a ceramic "core", often in the form of an obelisk decorated with hand-painted motifs, though other shapes like cones and wedges were also popular. These extraordinary moulds are usually only seen in museum displays and you will never see them used. These eccentric, but exquisite jellies were used as table centrepieces in the late Georgian dessert"...NOTE on my website listing is an example of an Obelisk shape core also by Neale and Co with sheaf of jelly ready for serving, another image is shown of the outer used to make the jelly .(these two images are for information only and taken from the Historicfood website.).
