Thomas Arcoleo made tobacco pipes commercially in African bubinga wood under the trade name Tom Pipecarver & Son from 1973 to 1993 in Princeton, New Jersey. These highly-sculptured "free-hand" pipes were sold at his shop at 4 Spring Street, Princeton, but mostly through various other retail shops throughout the U.S. Originally the business was called Princeton Pipes/USA when started in a residential basement. It was moved to retail locations and was finally established at 4 Spring Street until the retirement of Thomas Arcoleo in 1993. In addition to pipes and other tobacco products, not including cigarettes, Mr. Arcoleo was specialised in the restoration of small objets d'art, heirlooms, and artifacts--famously, "anything smaller than a breadbox". Mr. Arcoleo is retired and resides in Little Compton, RI.
