I couldn’t find IMP in the terminology post. Some help, please.
Could be something simple like *I from the first letter of the first word of the company (ISIK) followed by Meerschaum Pipe (?)
(Isik Luletasi Hayv. Nakl. San & Tic. Ltd.)

Other Turkish meerschaum company acronyms are more easily found, for example
CAO Meerschaum - Cano A. Ozgener

or AKB Meerschaum - Ali Kerim Bey (James Bond's Turkish ally in 'From Russia With Love')

Relaxing after a wonderful salad, filet mignon and asparagus dinner with a scoop of triple chocolate ice cream for dessert. I'm smoking Sept. 2015 Savinelli Doblone d’Oro in a smooth straight early ‘60s Lane era “William Conrad” Charatan Executive Extra Large stretch apple with diagonal channel cuts on the lower right and left of the bowl along with a black vulcanite double comfort saddle stem. M'lady bought a small bag of Ethical Coffee for me to try. I wonder if she thinks it'll help my morals? Poor deluded lady!
