Large Mos Espa Facade Piece
These pieces were used extensively on Mos Espa set decorations, mostly on crates found in fruit stand tents and along the perimeter of various vehicles. The piece is made from a thin plastic material that is painted brown to give it a Tatooine desert appearance. The plastic piece is originally black.

In the image above, this facade piece is clearly in sight around the perimeter of this vehicle. From this shot, it appears that this set prop is solid, however that's not really the case. Dozens of these pieces were used on the Mos Espa set, although most are in poor condition. They were painted slightly different shades of brown and tan.
