The Madison Bay Company, out of Pennsylvania, distributes antique reproduction tea sets made using the transferware process popular in the late 1700s. Although most transferware was made in cobalt blue, other shades became popular in America in the early 1800s.

The Charleston or Carolina pattern is a classic brown transferware with low country scenes. 

Brown was introduced around 1830. It was relatively inexpensive and there is a lot of old versions of this available. The pieces from the Madison Bay Company are microwave and dishwasher safe, though.
