Generally speaking, beaded glasses are perhaps less valuable than regular "smooth" glasses, even though they display better. It's difficult to achieve definition in a picture glass with a beaded label, so virtually all are plain text.

The Gunter's is something of an anomaly - the beaded version is more common than the smooth, but yes, typically sells for more.

Beaded glasses probably appeared later than the smooth labels that were designed to mimic acid etching, but I've never tried to date then so that's only an opinion with no data to back it up.
