For a 1910 fireplace in my home. Water damaged plaster was repaired and I’m going to prep and repaint. It’s been 30+ years since the last paint job and if memory serves me right, the walls were first painted with a dark brown base coat using a heavy nap roller. The application technique for the cream colored topcoat is what’s getting me...I can’t recall if a specialty roller or simply foam brushes were used. As you can see from the detail photo, the recesses in the knockdown stay Brown and the topcoat hits the high areas.
Any ideas on how the topcoat was applied? Thanks!

Probably just a 1/4" roller, rolled off as much as possible with very light pressure. You could also go back and redo some of the dark brown, and roll the white on it. It would probably be best to get the thickest paint you can too.
