both are 7/8". both have a single ground/faceted pontil. both have ribbons of color on one side with white on the other. both have the ribbons below the surface.

would either one of these be considered a maypole?

Going by Paul Baumann's definition (which I do) a maypole has only 1 to 3 or 4 threads of color (most often white, sometimes with a yellow) -- not "streamers" like you show. He does show a couple like yours (although I think those had single-color ribbons) that he describes as "streamers." Also that they're not usual. Yours could almost be called "cased coreless swirls." They're nice. The second one looks like the deco is on 2 levels, too -- I like 'em.
