Name this prototype hard rubber

yes, this is actually a soup mixture of red, burgundy, black and cream hard rubber. From a prototype Wahl pen I found some years ago at a flea market. This was a work shop lunch-time special, the nib was hand made with no imprint and clip engraved WAHL PEN.
Well, no name for this material, never mass produced, never seen even as a sample from anyone else, which just goes to show that hard rubber manufacturers were working overtime to come up with something to counter celluloids and acrylic patterns becoming dominant in the 1930's.
I think I would have called this "Hot Fudge Sundae"
