Sculpture in porcelain bisque representing "Amour désarmé par une vestale" (Love disarmed by a Vestal) after Louis-Simon Boizot. It depicts a vestal dressed in a Greek drape and crowned with flowers holding Love by a leash of flowers. She has taken his quiver and is placing it on an altar. Cupid, represented as a winged putto, puts his finger on her mouth. The whole rests on an oval base signed Boizot in hollow at the back and stamped with the mark "VTM porcelainde France" from the name of the workshop of Victor, Mauger and Tessier in Villenauxe-la-Grande. It also bears the number 532. There is also an apocryphal mark from Sèvres. It is a production of the beginning of the 20th century.

Louis-Simon Boizot (1743-1809) was a French sculptor who headed the sculpture workshops at the Manufacture de Sèvres from 1774. He mainly created neoclassical allegorical models, in stark contrast to the prevailing rocaille taste. However, he drew inspiration from what had gone before him at the Manufacture de Sèvres. Here, he adopts the position of Étienne-Maurice Falconet's Amour Ménçant.
