Why Tessar?

Why indeed, given it’s one of the oldest camera lens designs out there? For one, very, very little flare given how compact the whole lens is. A new thing I noticed is how it captures scattered light-

vs the more modern lenses-

Tessarian scatter looks like flower petals around the light source rather than simple rays scattered out. Very neat, very different.
