Ferdinand Bach carved in the classic Michigan style. His oversized decoys are solid and serviceable; they exemplify the finest of the twentieth century Detroit area decoys. Carvers from Bach's era made oversized decoys with broad backs, short tails, wide flat bottoms and rounded contours throughout the construction of the decoy. Bach converted old telephone poles of cedar into oval-shaped lures and topped them with sugar pine heads.

His decoys were wide to offer greater visibility to fly (showing 500 of 1414 characters).
