Vintage Wooden Hat Block

I was surprised to find this wooden hat block at a church sale last week! It had a man's Stetson beaver hat on it.
I am looking forward to listing it on Etsy but I am not quite sure of the wood. I have listed a balsa head before and of course I know it isn't balsa. And it doesn't have the grain or heaviness of oak.
What kind of wood do you think it is? Maple, maybe? Any help or suggestions would be welcome.
Thank you!

No, I did not paint the red lips. It came that way. And the white spatters appear to be some type of paint. There must be a story there somewhere!
