Dyes used before the Nineteenth century could be very bright when new, and fresh, but faded quite quickly according to most accounts. I quite like the "Little Big Man" colours personally, but if you feel they are too bright or "loud" you could always try a thin wash of brown or grey to "tone them down"?
