I don't think it's anything to get too excited about as there could be many reasons - the amount of frit sprinkled onto the sticky surface; the size of the frit used; a higher temperature of firing, which causes the frit to melt. Any/all of these could create slight differences in appearance.

I saw a footed glass (not Chance) yesterday with orange crinkle decoration - those crinkles were thick looking too, so I reckon it might be a reaction with whatever is in orange frit.

I'd forgotten about the 1939 advert I posted some time ago (grief, four years ago!):
