Toilet paper holder and towel rack removal
 
I have ceramic paper towel holder and towel rack which I would like to remove and use somewhere else. They are probably original installed by the builder. They look like they are sticking to the wall, but how do I figure out if they are the type going into the drywall or just glued to the surface before I take them out? If they go into the drywall I would rather leave them where they are. If they are surface glued to the wall what is the best way to get them off?
Thanks.

'The smaller the fixture "footprints" against the wall the more likely they use fasteners that go through the drywall or into studs.

Look in the bottom, there should be a little hole with a screw to remove them.

Or it uses a wedge arrangement and can be lifted off.
