40 at 40 - Part 2

Here's part 2 of the 40@40 series (you can see part one here). It's from a video series put together by The National to mark the 40th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates. It features 40 historic objects that have shaped the country. You can read about each object here.

My favourite from this set of videos is the Grundig radio (object number 20).

Object 11. Russian tea pot - 19-20th century

Object 12. Pearl Sieves - Early 20th Century

Object 13. Passports belonging to Mohammed Al Fahim -1957 to 1971

Object 14. Block of coral from an Abu Dhabi house - late 19th/early 20th century

Object 16. Royal invitation cards- 1979

Object 17. Two clay pots - date unknown

Object 18. Al Sidr Leaves

Object 19. Khanjar dagger - 1930s

Object 20. A Grundig radio used by Sheikh Shakhbut



[PS I'm aware Object 15 is missing from The National's YouTube channel. Will add it here as soon as I get my hands on it.]
