Luton fights New York in jug war (UK)Breaking News
Luton Museums, with £2,500 a year for new exhibits, is getting £590,000 from the National Heritage Memorial Fund.
This will help to match the £750,000 price offered by the world-famous "Met" for the Wenlok Jug.
Luton museum's fund has received £160,000 already from the National Art Collections Fund and local supporters.
The 12in (31cm) high bronze tankard, which dates from the 14th or 15th Century, bears an inscription to "My Lord Wenlok" - thought to be one of two men connected with the Bedfordshire town.
