This piece is somewhat of a mystery. Does the 916/sickle/star/P mean it is Russian or Asian? What type of silver is this? Does anyone know?

Sorry, upon further inspection, the mark underneath is "P, a star with the hammer & sickle inside it, 916"

Thanks for any help!

What do any of y'all think about dates? I thought it was from around the 1930s...

Thanks for all the responses.
