    One of those markings indicates price of the item, and it is 3 Russian rubli and 00 kapeiki. It was used for mustard serving in USSR time. The other I wouldn't be able to tell. All I see it is written with Russian letters

    glass insert. metal base with enameled design. Those number you are giving 810MMEi for me look's like 8?MME hard to see the lats one. I do not know what that means, but I can guarantee it is 100% Soviet period, made in USSR in 1970s. Usually it comes wits a little spoon.

    I think its a melchoir alloy made of copper and nickel. I can read some Russian but it's hard to translate into English. If the first word looks like BlOMMET, my best attempt would be vyoomyet:)

    Hi sarahoff! Thanks for picking up on this one!

    I've had a look around the Russian internet and have an hypothesis about the first mark.
    The second mark is unclear at this stage.

    I think we have Russian Cyrillic in the word you transcribe as "BlOMMET".
    I know that CW does not do certain alphabets but I believe this is "9?????".
    In fact this is a Russian way of coding materials produced in the Soviet Union.

    It has four parts:
    Date 1969: 9
    The letter "?" or 'yoo' as you mentioned, indicates a piece of jewelry.
    The letter M is for Moscow.
    MET indicates a metal item.

    BlOMMET = 9?????
    It's explained in Russian here. They are equally confused!

    Sorry about those question marks.
    Each one is an unrecognised letter of the Russian alphabet.

    BlOMMET = 9lOMMET.
