Tonak "Brillant", 58cm probably mid to later 1950s.  The Velour has a fantastic finish and easily dry creases.  The liner has a blue tint which makes me think the felt color could be more of a dark blueish black.  This hat was made for the Czechoslovakian market.

Tonak "Brillant" "бриллиант", 58 cm possibly mid 1950s.  This fantastic Velour was found by Brent on the Fedora Lounge and kindly offered to me a few months ago.  The condition of the light colored Velour is excellent along with the all the components.  The Velour felt is very pliable and easily dry creases. The liner is really special along with the Russified Tonak mark.  This hat was made for the Russian market. The Sweatband mark "бриллиант"  is Russian for "Brillant".
