Based on the reel seat, grip and ferrule design, it looks like a 1920-1940 Montague/Chubb. There were thousands of these made, so the value today isn't very high. A professional re-finish would cost about $50 per section, which you'd never recover.

These rods make good decorative wall hangers if you're into that sort of thing. A better option would be to refinish it yourself for fishing. As long as there are no structural defects and the ferrules are reasonably tight fitting, you might end up with a serviceable fishing rod. The old rods can be dramatically improved by scraping off all the old varnish & fingernalil polish, adding guides, and rotating the sections to eliminate any "spline." It really isn't that hard.
