Divider boxes for glassware

I have been experimenting with drinking vessels made of several materials: cheap discount store plastic, polycarbonate, porcelain, and stainless steel.

None has been entirely satisfactory and as a result I'm contemplating a return to glass. Glass is easy to clean, looks good, does not stain, and of course, it is possible to ascertain whether the glass is half full, half empty, or all three with a mere glance.

In the gilded age, travelers of means or station took great pride in bringing all the comforts and style of home. There was no plastic, and glassware of all kinds was packed in velvet-lined boxes or cases made of wood or leather.

I'm envisioning a wooden box, divided into (say) 12 cells, each lined with velvet or felt, and holding a glass. Perhaps with a lid. Lightweight but secure enough to hold glassware and prevent breakage even during emergency maneuvers.

A variation with somewhat more blocking might work for stemware.

Any sources? Ideas? Who has tried this?

I.m trying to think of a better way to carry several bottles of wine other than tucking them into my underwear and sock drawer .

liquor store boxes with the dividers work well. supermarket divided boxes can work but most use very thin separators. they are light, disposable and recyclable.

How about this. The owner removed a floor furnace and replaced it with a wine cellar.

Thanks for the links and notes. I experimented with cardboard on my last trip and really do find genuine glassware to be worth the effort. The cardboard box with dividers stays in the drawer under the dinette but I may still experiment with something a little classier at some point.
