Mos Espa Fruit Stand
This prop piece was created out of a white plastic household table formed from two identical funnel-shaped pieces. The pieces were painted brown and connected to create this hourglass look. I found this item by walking through a town where lots of the prequel props had been dumped and showed the image below to many people there to see if anyone had this particular item. They brought out three of these complete stands, but only two of them were still painted brown. The white unpainted version looks nothing like the ones seen in the prequel photos, and one of the locals had washed one off to use in their home.

The image above shows the stand being used by a vendor to display produce. From the image, one would never guess that this stand is made of plastic, however many of the items in the shot are painted household items that achieve an out of this world appearance with just a simple coat of paint and clever placement.
