~ Erst bezahlen ~
The scene on this porcelain stein (ca. 1890's) is similar to if not by Franz Defregger and depicts what appears to be a guest in a pub asking for a dance or whatever from the waitress, but payment is expected first. Pay-per-dance was not uncommon when I was a young man.
Erst bezahlen. First pay.
