    Can’t see the base so also could be a torch.

    Too thick to be a torch
    Also a torch looks a bit different

    I have several torches that look identical.
    Not sure what too thick is, they look somewhere in the middle of the thickness generally found in the trade. I have one double the thickness, he's a fatty for sure, but definitely a branching torch with red tips.

    The easy test is whether theirs a foot or a skeleton at the base, and this I cannot see.

    Maybe just the pic
