Bartolomeo Bon (also spelled Buon; died after 1464) was an Italian sculptor and architect from Campione d'Italia.

Together with his father Giovanni, he worked in Venice: they finished the decoration of the famous Gothic Ca' d'Oro (1424–1430) and the marble door of the Basilica di Santa Maria dei Frari. They were also entrusted the construction of the Porta della Carta (Paper's Door) of St. Mark's Basilica (1438–1442).

Bartolomeo alone worked at a portal of the Scuola Grande di San Marco (a lunette is now housed in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London), the portal of San Polo and the Porta della Carta, which connects the Ducal Palace to St. Mark's Basilica.
