    Please see the following two photos from a celling in an upstairs bedroom.

    In addition, please see the two pictures from a cupboard under the stairs, which appears to have the same finish as the previous celling.

    Pretty sure it's painted wallpaper. Possibly with years of paint, hard to tell.
    I would steam it off.
    It will be a complete pain to get started and need pricking/scoring.

    If it is artex, steam will stop any dust but very unlikely

    If its paper you should be able to push in the bubbles/peaks with a small screwdriver as they should be hollow ,if solid its textured coating
