It is my opinion that your mask has characteristics of some Toma masks as far as the general overall shape. The geometric patterns and coloring are similar to some Bobo masks from Burkina Faso. It's a little bit of a hybrid mask that doesn't closely follow traditional styles of either people though.
My opinion is that it was a mask made for the tourist trade/collecting market and any appearance of age is artificially created.
Google Toma masks and Bobo masks and you'll see the similarities.
Hope that helps some.
