History

Monart Glass was made at the Moncrieff glassworks in Scotland between 1924 and 1961 by Salvador Ysart , a Spanish glassworker and his family. Ysart had worked at several French glassworks including Schneider before he was recruited from France to come to Britain to work on the war effort producing glass items such as laboratory glass. In 1923/4 Ysart made a beautiful vase using colours and techniques from France which was seen by Mrs Isabel Moncrieff. She encouraged him to develop a range of art glass which was produced under the name of Monart which was a mixture of their 2 surnames.

Monart glass was a great success and continued till 1939 when the second World War disrupted production.
