Monart is the brand name for the distinctive decorative coloured Scottish glassware manufactured in Perth in the inter-war era by the company John Moncrieff Ltd to designs by the Spanish glassblower Salvador Ysart.

It is noted for its strong colours and decorative techniques incorporating inclusions or iridescent finishes, elements that are commonly shared with French art glass of the same period.
