I found that as well. However, I cannot find but 1 example of his work with no price. Is my violin worth anything? I don't play and I don't want to give it away. Or let it collect dust...

 Contact one of the New England auction houses, either Skinner, or Tarisio, But there are lots of others. Contact more than one and see what they say.

Hi Kriss,

Any update?  I wish I had seen this post.  I'm from Gainesville where Gino lived, and when I was a kid, I played on a 3/4 size bow named the "Gino Cavaceppi Memorial Bow" made by David Forbes.  I think David knew Gino, you could call him if you wanted first-hand information.

If your violin is in good shape, it's definitely worth something.
