I'm seeing something about this that could look like a Euphorbia fimbriata. Maybe?

euphorbia mammillaris variegata!
The variegated Indian corn cob!

The "spines" are actually dead dry bloom stalks, many euphorbs do this.

The are highly susceptible to "the Black Death" here...mine always die, along with a few other types if euphorbia...most do just fine here tho...
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!

Thanks both of you! In googling images I am certain that swayback is correct about it being "Variegated Indian Corn Cob."
