I picked this up last year. It's a WOLFS HEAD. Most likely a prop from an old Dark Ride, Spook House, or Fun House.
It's made of a bunch of materials: Plaster (like they make casts out of when you break and arm or leg), wood, paper mache, paint, chicken coop wire.
It is authentically OLD. At some point, probably after being removed from wherever it was, someone mounted it to this base. The base is "newer" judging by the wood that's not that old, and some shiny screws. But you can see when you look into it's mouth it's very old and the of the original screws are corroded, rusty, and have been that way for a very long time.
Wonderful old carnival item. Folk Art.
