Trying to match wall texture

House was built in 1965 and the bathroom walls have a texture that looks like an orange peel. Is there a roller on the market that will create the same effect or is there another way? I installed windows and the finished drywall around window openings is smooth.
Also,the rest of the house has a slight texture that puts you in mind of someone putting paint on a roller and after rolling it the first time it has that kind of look. Meaning under normal circumstances one would keep rolling back and forth to spread it out creating a sand finish? The look is uniform I just don't know if they sprayed that look on back in the 1960's but how do I recreate it?
